Hanselminutes Podcast 101 - Dr. Michio Kaku on the Physics of the Impossible
My one-hundred-and-first podcast is up. Last week I was at an internal Microsoft conference and Dr. Kaku was speaking. I reached out to him personally and was able to interview him at 6 in the morning between his keynote rehearsal and his actual talk, just before he flew back to New York. Needless to say, he's a busy guy and I really appreciated his willingness to chat with me.
Dr. Michio Kaku is a theoretical physicist, best-selling author, and popularizer of science. He's the co-founder of string field theory (a branch of string theory), and continues Einstein's search to unite the four fundamental forces of nature into one unified theory. His book tour starts March 18th and the new book ships March 11th.
In this show, Scott talks with theoretical physicist and futurist Dr. Michio Kaku about making what was once considered impossible technology into reality. This is the topic of his new book, Physics of the Impossible: A Scientific Exploration into the World of Phasers, Force Fields, Teleportation, and Time Travel.

Do also remember the complete archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.
Telerik is our sponsor for this show.
Check out their UI Suite of controls for ASP.NET. It's very hardcore stuff. One of the things I appreciate about Telerik is their commitment to completeness. For example, they have a page about their Right-to-Left support while some vendors have zero support, or don't bother testing. They also are committed to XHTML compliance and publish their roadmap. It's nice when your controls vendor is very transparent.
As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)
Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?
