Two good ones:
First, D.J. Grothe‘s interview with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson on Point of Inquiry.
Damn, I wish I could write as eloquently as Tyson speaks.
He shares why “atheism” isn’t an ideal term, the upsides and downsides of science education, and an absolutely beautiful story about Carl Sagan.
Tyson is the author of Death by Black Hole.
The other interview is from NPR’s Weekend Edition. It features Hanna Rosin, author of God’s Harvard: A Christian College on a Mission to Save America. The reference is to the über-Christian Patrick Henry College. An alumnus from the school, Daniel Noa, is also on the program.
The interview was too short. I could’ve listened to them for a while… but it’s well worth the brief conversation.
As for Rosin’s book:
What began as a 2005 New Yorker article became, Rosin says, a work of anthropology and an examination of how one school has become an experiment in shaping the future of Christian politics and education.
If you haven’t read the cited New Yorker article, you’ll want to check it out.
