Read Science! Episode 13: Sports Science Edition

Our especially brave guest for our lucky-thirteenth show was David Epstein, author of “The Sports Gene : Inside the Science of Extraordinary Athletic Performance.” As always we had a wide-ranging conversation that included not only engaging topics, amusing anecdotes, and fascinating facts from his book, but a discussion about how to communicate necessary and interesting stories — about science or most anything else worthy of the time — that take some time to tell. We had something for sports enthusiasts and science enthusiasts, and for those who happen to be both, all in one great conversation.
