Eureka: Radio Now, Radio in the Future

Last week I mentioned that I was going to be on the radio twice, talking about Eureka: Discovering Your Inner Scientist. I was right about one of those:

-- My appearance on Voice of America's Science World ran over the weekend, and there's a link to the program up now. I can't figure out a way to link directly to the episode (other than hotlinking to the download, which seems uncool), but it's the December 19, 2014 episode. My bit starts about 16 minutes in.

-- The other radio thing I mentioned last week was an appearance on WAMC's Roundtable. I did, in fact, drive to Albany to record this live in the studio-- and let me tell you, it's a whole lot more pleasant to be talking to a person in the same room as you than doing these things over the phone or Internet. Given the plummeting audience at this time of year, though, they recorded it to use on January 5, when people are back at work and listening to radio again. So, tune in then, and hear me chat with Joe about scientific thinking.

In other publicity news, of interest only to me, I'm weirdly pleased to see my book on the Williams alumni site. Just a little blurb, stuck in between a George Washington bio and a kids' fantasy book, but I like it.

Anyway, that's the latest in Eureka publicity. Things will quiet down for a bit for the next week or two, but there will be more stuff in January, I'm sure.

A couple of quick updates on Eureka publicity, as we get on a plane today to take the kids to Florida for the weekend: -- APS News has an excerpt from the chapter on collecting hobbies. This is kind of choppy, obviously cut down to meet a word count limit of some sort, but it gets the basic flavor…
Two radio appearances upcoming as I continue to promote Eureka: Discovering Your Inner Scientist: -- Tomorrow, Friday the 19th, I'll be going down to WAMC around 11am to be on Roundtable, talking with Joe Donahue.

Two new items about Eureka: Discovering Your Inner Scientist: 1) WAMC has now posted the interview I did with Joe Donahue on The Roundtable. This was a fun interview, and covers a number of examples from the book, so I think gives you a really nice sense of what it's all about. 2) There's a review…
"Hey," you say, "It's been, like, a week and a half since you did a post flogging Eureka: Discovering Your Inner Scientist. What gives?" Well, I've been kind of busy, and also the media world sort of goes into suspended animation over the stretch between Christmas and New Year's. However, there's…
