Podcast of Michio Kaku's Commonwealth Club Program

As readers of this blog know, I had the honor of moderating the March 28, 2011, question-and-answer session with famed physicist Dr. Michio Kaku at The Commonwealth Club in Palo Alto. The podcast of that program is now available. You can listen to the free podcast of this program on the Club's web site, or you can download it from iTunes (click that link or just search iTunes for "commonwealth club").

Kaku was in town to discuss his new book, Physics of the Future, which had just been released a couple weeks earlier and was already on The New York Times best-seller list. He also made some comments about the nuclear crisis in Japan.

This program will air on KQED Radio in the Bay Area on Friday, April 29, at 8:00 p.m. The following couple weeks will see the program airing over The Commonwealth Club's nationwide radio network of about 230 stations. So check your local radio station.

It's a great program. Kaku's not only a very smart man, but he is an excellent and entertaining speaker who can make important and complex scientific concepts and explanations understandable to those of us who are not world-famous physicists.

Thanks for mentioning this show was available on iTunes, I heard the last bit live on my local NPR radio very early this morning and I could not find the podcast link on the Commonwealth web site, so thanks very much for pointing me in the right direction! Looking forward to listening to the whole show.
