Scientific American Podcast -vwv

Science Talk is the weekly podcast of the Scientific American podcast. There were some recent shows that I find particularly interesting and would like to point it out to whoever is reading this.

The 13 June 2007 show featured famous author Jared Diamond, who is quite an impressive character. In the podcast, he gave a short speech covering topics related to his latest book, Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed.

The 6 June 2007 show featured an essay by Mark Twain rebutting the idea that the world was made for Man. It is both sarcastic and humorous. It's a pity I couldn't find the actual essay but you can listen to the audio version through the podcast.
