The Daily Show and The Colbert Report are on break this week. If you missed them the first time around, you can catch Daryl Bem and Brian Greene with Stephen on Tuesday, Bill Gates with Jon on Wednesday, Paul Offit with Stephen on Wednesday. Review the last two late night listings for details on these guests.
Yet another miss on my part (I’m still behind in my TDS/TCR viewing) was the appearance of T. Boone Pickens on The Daily Show on January 27. It will rerun on Tuesday. Pickens is an oil and gas executive (so not on my natural radar for these posts) more recently known for his plans to get the U.S. off of foreign oil. The interview involved discussions of fracking (no, Battlestar Galactica fans, the SFW version of the word), a process of extracting natural gas that has environmental consequences – something Pickens disputes.
But hey, there are new appearances to note, thanks to the Scottish Conan Guy, Craig Ferguson. On Tuesday, Egyptologist Dr. Kara Cooney will visit, and on Friday, science writer Jennifer Ouellette will sit down with Craig.
