Phil Plait Interview

On Friday, June 10, 2011, I had the wonderful pleasure of sitting down with Phil Plait (@BadAstronomer) for a live gab session on the Geeky Pleasures Radio Show over at The Look 24/7 (@TheLook247). As always, it was a lot of fun to sit down and have a chat with Phil. He was entertaining, insightful, witty, humorous and nerdy, which is what we want.

I would like to, yet again, thank all of you who tuned-in and asked your questions, plus gave such wonderful feedback about the show. I’m happy that you enjoyed it. If you missed the interview, have no fear. You will find it embedded below. But first, the show notes.
