V&B: Steven Weinberg

In this episode of Views & Brews, KUT’s Rebecca McInroy talks with Nobel Laureate Dr. Steven Weinberg about his new book, To Explain The World: The Discovery of Modern Science. In a packed house at the Cactus Cafe, McInroy asked Weinberg about everything from the what ideas remain from the cult of the Pythagoreans, to Weinberg’s opinion of Francis Bacon. The conversation is dense, but well worth a listen!

V&B: Time

Time is the substance I am made of. Time is a river which sweeps me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger which destroys me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire which consumes me, but I am the fire.” –Jorge Luis Borge

What is time? How can rhythm and time phrases bring us into a dialogue with the past? and  how much of our relationship to and our knowledge of time is driven by our intuition? Listen back as KUT’s Rebecca McInroy talks with: cosmologist and astrologer, Kerrie Welch;  jazz drummer Brannen Temple; and astrophysicist and psychology professor, David Gilden about Time.
