qandqThe CBC’s 24 December episode of Quirks & Quarks with Bob McDonald is entirely dedicated to interviews with authors of recent science-themed books. While not exactly natural history proper, the conversations are indeed interesting. The authors appearing are David Grinspoon, author of Earth in Human Hands; Shaping Our Planet’s Future, Melba Kurman, who along with Hod Lipsom wrote Driverless; Intelligent Cars and the Road Ahead, and Jon Willis, author of All These Worlds Are Yours; The Scientific Search for Alien Life.
