Casey Doran has done an outstanding interview with Dr. Alan Glasser, one of the most brilliant minds working in the field of computational nuclear physics today.
…The fact that Dr. Glasser happens to be my father does not in any way prejudice me in making that claim. :) Go here to listen to the episode!
In the interview, the two of them have a fascinating discussion about the state of nuclear fusion research, the future of energy, and the politics of support for the sciences in general.
You may remember Casey as the former producer of the Tacoma-based show Ask An Atheist, who also interviewed me after I appeared on the show in 2010. He is apparently hard at work launching a new audio podcast which focuses on interviews and discussions about science and public policy. Show him some support, will you?
