Jon Stewart’s Extended Interview with Richard Dawkins

In case you missed it, here’s the extended interview with Richard Dawkins from last night’s episode of The Daily Show.

Part One aired on TV (and my response is here), Parts Two and Three are only online.

There’s an awkward moment near the middle of Part Two when Stewart asks Dawkins where he goes where he dies. Dawkins hesitates and Stewart takes the opportunity to chime in, “So you don’t know.” Dawkins eventually responds, but it’s disappointing he didn’t have a pithy one-liner ready to go for that.

Love the exchange around the 4:45 mark of Part Three :) Though, right after that, Stewart kind of catches him when he gets Dawkins to admit that all “-isms” are bad no matter what. (Atheism, too?)
