Are We Alone? - Next show available April 7, 2008: "Nerds"
There are two kinds of people: those who are unstylish, socially inept, yet academically gifted, and those who tease them. Being a nerd is rough; it's no fun to sit alone in the cafeteria or be forced to dine on beach sandwiches. But revenge is sweet: the world depends more than ever on the witty and gifted to keep it technologically and scientifically turning. So who gets the last laugh? Just ask Bill Gates. Then again, have attitudes towards eggheads really matured? Just ask Al Gore. Hear why America has contempt for nerds, while other countries treat them as rock stars. Also, how to solve a Rubik's Cube in seconds, and a Geeksta Rap sing-along. Guests:
- David Anderegg - Author of Nerds: Who They Are and Why We Need More of Them
- Jessica Fridrich - Electrical and computer engineer at Binghamton University in New York
- Sun Kwok - Physicist and astronomer at the University of Hong Kong
- Peter Hartlaub - Pop Culture Critic for the San Francisco Chronicle
- Christian Ternus - Sophomore at MIT
- Fred Hall - Space Physicist
