BI 60 Matthew Cobb on

Episode 60 of Books and Ideas is an interview with Matthew Cobb, author of Life's Greatest Secret: The Race to Crack the Genetic Code. We focus on some of the unsung scientists who made essential discoveries.

Matthew Cobb was the first person I ever interviewed back in Episode 7, so it was special to have him on to help me celebrate the 9th Anniversary of Books and Ideas.

BI 59 Phenomenology with Anthony Chemero

This episode introduces Phenomenology, a philosophical tradition that focuses on the nature of experience. We talk with Dr. Anthony Chemero, co-author of Phenomenology: An Introduction, which is a new book that not only puts phenomenology into historical perspective but argues that it is a living tradition, which continues to make valuable contributions to fields like psychology and embodied cognitive science. This interview is appropriate for listeners of all backgrounds--no prior knowledge is required.

BI 57 Why Podcast? with Elsie Escobar

Episode 57 is the first episode of Books and Ideas that I have produced in 2015. It is a conversation with experienced podcaster Elsie Escobar. Elsie brings a unique perspective to the question Why Podcast? because she does it all: she hosts and produces 2 shows, works for Libsyn, the company that hosts my shows and many others, and she listens to more podcasts than seems humanly possible.

BI 55 Dr. John Ratey Talks about his New Book

Episode 55 of Books and Ideas is an interview with Dr. John Ratey, co-author of "Go Wild: Free Your Body and Mind from the Afflictions of Civilization." There is considerable evidence that our hunter-gatherer ancestors were generally suprisingly healthy, so the purpose of this book and our conversation was to explore the scientific evidence supporting a return to a healthier lifestyle. We touch on diet, exercise, the role of sleep and even meditation. We also explore the importance of our relationship with nature and each other.

54 Dr. Michael Saags, HIV-AIDS Pioneer

My apologies for uploading an incomplete version of this episode, and worst of all not detecting the problem for almost a week.

Episode 54 of Books and Ideas is an interview with Dr. Michaels Saags from the UAB Center for AIDS Research and author of "Positive: One Doctor's Personal Encounters with Death, Life, and the US Healthcare System." Dr. Saag became involved in the fight against HIV-AIDS early in his career and his work has been vital in transforming HIV from a death sentence to a manageable medical condition, but like many American physicians he is "angry" about the current state of "healthcare" in the US. We consider both topics in this interview.

BI 52 Author Mur Lafferty Returns
