Here it is, and I think it may be the best diavlog we've done yet: These are the different segments of the conversation, and we actually had some significant disagreements about the role of education in solving our problem, and other matters. I think it was a great talk:

Science Saturday: The War on Ignorance Chris’s new book, “Unscientific America” (02:23) Carl vs. Chris on how to fight scientific illiteracy (16:03) A brief history of science’s image problem (09:10) Do we need another Carl Sagan? (04:46) If bloggers can’t make science cool again, who can? (09:17) The culture gap between Hollywood and the scientific community (08:38)

Carl is also going to be introducing me when I give a book talk in New Haven, CT, on July 21. Details here.
