Zack Kopplin is having one hell of a run of great publicity. Between getting the Hugh M. Hefner First Amendment Award last summer to a wonderful profile at io9, he’s been speaking out against Creationism in Louisiana public schools and for good science in general — and people are paying attention.
In his most recent media appearance, Zack was interviewed by legendary journalist Bill Moyers:
It’s an awesome, long interview that really lets Zack tell his story. It’s very clear from listening to him that a young person with passion for a cause can really get something done. If we had more students like him speaking out against this Christian-led nonsense, states like Louisiana could focus on truly educating students instead of debating whether or not superstition needs a place in a curriculum.
Susan Jacoby, author of The Great Agnostic: Robert Ingersoll and American Freethought, also appears on the episode.
