I have four business items—the announcement of an audiobook and three broadcasts.
First, I’ve signed a contract that will make Faith Versus Fact into an audiobook. For those of you who prefer listening, you will eventually have it on CD (or however they do these things; I’ve never listened to an audiobook). Someone told me that most audiobooks are abridged; I have no idea whether that’s true, or whether mine will be.
Second, an audio transcript of my appearance on last Friday’s Brian Lehrer show is available here. Lehrer did ask a rather invidious question at the end, but I deflected it.
Also, my 17-minute interview on Sunday’s Left Jab Radio is also archived here. The interviewer was remarkably sympathetic, though I see that I need to work on saying “you know” less often!
Finally, for Canadian readers, you can catch my television appearance on Steve Paikin’s The Agenda tonight on TVO; the show starts at 8 pm and is repeated at 11 pm (presumably Toronto time). I’m not sure when I come on, but our one-on-one chat lasted about 25 minutes. I’ll put up a link later when it’s archived.) One reader informs me that based on the ordering in the show’s schedule, I may go first.
As lagniappe (?), here are a few more photos of my trip to Canada.
First, here are the speakers and organizers of the INR5 conference in Vancouver. I won’t list the names; you’ll surely recognize some of them. I believe the photo was taken by Melissa Chen and circulated by Vyckie Garrison, who’s in the front row with a drink. I will point out the two main organizers: Bill and Kathy Ligertwood: Bill’s second from right in the front row, and Kathy is slightly crouched down in front of him, her hands on the shoulders of Tom Melchiorre, a key person in the meeting’s logistics. Lawrence Krauss and Seth Andrews had departed before the photo was taken.
I chat with Eric Adriaans, the new head of the Centre for Inquiry, Canada, in the CfI offices (the two photos below are from Mark Taylor). He kindly gave me a copy of the Charlie Hebdo that came out after the terrorist attack—the issue with the weeping Muhammad on the cover. It’s a collector’s item now.
Buy the damn book, already!
