Audio Interview with Lee Smolin

by F.

Lee Smolin’s new book The Trouble with Physics has, if not caused, then at least been associated with the ever more noticeable kerfuffle over string theory. There’s a nice interview with him here. I don’t much care about astrophysics and how many universes there are—how many do we need?—but the philosophy of science angle is interesting.

MP3 format. About 30:00. It’s here, toward the bottom of the page under “The Trouble with Physics.” Other goodies an WNYC, too.
