AADL Productions Podcast: Brian Wecht of The Story Collider
Thu, 03/03/2011 - 2:14pm by andrewjmac
Brian Wecht is a postdoctoral researcher in theoretical particle physics as the University of Michigan. He is also, along with particle physicist-turned-storyteller Ben Lillie, the creator of The Story Collider, a project that aims to get people telling stories about science in their everyday lives. These stories--sometimes funny, sometimes serious--are presented live at storytelling events, through the Story Collider podcast, and on video at the Story Collider Vimeo channel. Brian shares with us where the idea for this project first came from and the plans as the Story Collider becomes larger and continues to draw people from all walks of life to share and listen.
If you like the sound of Story Collider and want to hear some stories of science told live, join us in the Downtown Library Multi-Purpose Room on March 11 at 7pm for the first Story Collider event to happen outside New York City.
