As long as I can remember, I've been a fan of George Johnson's writing about science. He has always kept focus on the deep mysteries of existence, even while writing in a deliciously clear style. So it was a real pleasure to talk to him on about my own book, Microcosm. Even though we spent lots of time wondering what E. coli tells us about the universal rules of life itself, we still found time to talk about what it's like to have sex in a Waring blender. Check it out. (And to all those insomniacs--don't forget, I'll be on the radio on Coast to Coast AM tonight at 1 am.)
