We started our new season conversing with a science-communication power couple : Jennifer Ouellette and Sean M. Carroll, who happen to be married to each other. The books providing discussion material were Jennifer Ouellette’s _Me, Myself and Why: Searching for the Science of Self_, and Sean Carroll’s _The Particle at the End of the Universe: How the Hunt for the Higgs Boson Leads Us to the Edge of a New World_. As usual, we ran out of time before we ran out of conversation.
