Coming Soon!!!

This netcast explores the rapidly changing world of biotech, with a penchant towards getting a better understanding of who we are and where we are going. The living world will soon be a true substrate for engineering. Our world will change, and so will we. 
We bring a first hand account from the scientists that are moving us into this new technological era: the era of biotech.

    FiB Episode 031- The insy-winsy teeny-weeny Big Bang

    Dr. Michio Kaku describes our universe and the physics of the impossible: quantum teleportation, invisibillity, telepathy...


    Host: Marc Pelletier

    Guest: Dr. Michio Kaku; Henry Semat Professor of Theoretical Physics at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.

    In this episode, we are very fortunate to have Dr. Michio Kaku. He is the co-founder of String Field Theory, and a Professor of Theoretical Physics at City Univerity in NY. In our discussion he talks about everything, literally: the theory of EVERYTHING! I must say, if we are going to have a true understanding of the living world, it will demand an understanding our universe and how it 's assembled. You can't separate out the laws of physics from biology, they go hand in hand. Dr. Kaku also talks about the current teleportation experiments to the space shuttle, and how we might some day be able to teleport DNA. Seriously, that is BIOTECH!!!

    Dr. Kaku's book:
    Physics of the Impossible: A Scientific Exploration into the World of Phasers, Force Fields, Teleportation, and Time Travel

    Very enjoyable show and please take this as constructive criticism - the last two interviews had quite a bit of audio distortion. Aubrey de Gray in particular had the combination of distortion and British accent, to the point where I couldn't even understand it in the car.

    Please keep up the good work but a little more bandwidth for Skype or whatever medium you are using would go a long way for podcast listeners in noisy environments.

    Your right about the audio quality.

    I asked Dr. DeGrey if he had a headset with a noise canceling mic, and that if he didn't that I would send him one. He said he did, and that he used skype all the time. I was really surprised when he started using his laptop's internal mic...

    I also did an interview with Moira Gunn, that I probably won't release. We recorded remotely from her radio station in SF, but she used the phone lines. They didn't have a computer set up for VOIP...

    Fortunately, the next few that are in the can should be ok!

    Thanks for listening, and I will do my best to put my audiophile cap on!

    Good to hear Marc, thanks for the reply! Dr. Kaku's really wasn't all that bad, the fact that it came right after de Gray's is likely what made it more noticeable.

    You keep releasing and I'll keep listening. Thanks again...

    Mark, this is another one of your most instpirational interviews.
    I can only hope that many young people listen to your series, feeling what I feel: the urge to go into science, to become scientists and to help pushing the envelope of things we know. I envy you for the fact that you're getting to talk to all those amazing people and I greatly appreciate that you're making those interviews available to us.

    Keep them coming!
