We had to cut quite a few stellar moments from Krista Tippett’s conversation with theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss for the radio show and podcast. He’s a devoted atheist who has some provocative things to say about religion, the Higgs field, our country’s literacy about science and how it should be talked about in the same way as we discuss film or the arts.

Our unedited interview with him allows for the fullest listening, and it’s definitely worth your time.

what i say about comfort and discomfort is in here, somewhere toward the beginning. no way to see the timestamp.

also some rudimentary (for me?) talk on particle physics and the higgs field, mm.

Reblogging now so I won’t forget to watch later.
