Talk Nerdy with Cara Santamaria
« on: December 14, 2016, 02:53:44 PM »
This week:  a live panel of physicist-celebrities.  I enjoyed it.

I think it was Brian Greene who said something that blew my mind about string theory:

"If you scaled up an atom to the size of the entire known universe, a string in that scale would be the size of a tree."
Amend and resubmit.

I don't know if somebody has a way of getting in contact with Cara (I looked for an email link on her website and could not find one) but I am thinking she should see about getting an interview with a PHD student / graduate detained by Trump's immigration policies on "Talk Nerdy."

Great idea!

Definitely worth e-mailing her through the SGU. If you are on twitter, you could send her a message @CaraSantaMaria.

I have been avoiding joining Twitter but if you wish to contact her, welcome to it. Can give me credit or take credit yourself, I don't care.

Why not contact her through SGU? I think all the rogues see it, but maybe specify that it's for Cara.

I'll defer to you, Desert Fox. It is a great suggestion, and would make for some fascinating interviews. Babel is probably right that the best method is via the SGU (although the last time I sent an e-mail to info@, it got bounced).

I will listen in on the next talknerdy and see is she states a means of contact.
There is also that I could PayPal her 5 buck (sorry, poor right now) and usually you PayPal to an email address.

The interesting thing is that I have been contact multiple scholars and/or scientists on various issues and often get questions answered.

I saw Michio Kaku and gave it a miss.
I will give it a look though since you seem to have liked it!

I must say, I find it hard to feel bothered to click on lots of episodes because in my feed, I only see the interviewee name and no information about topics.

I have a hard time taking Michio Kaku seriously.  This week she interviewed Michael Marsh, probably a well known individual round these parts, better than the physicist panel though.
