In the future, everyone will be famous for five minutes

Excimer is on the Nature Chemistry Podcast!!! You know you want to listen...

The part about chemistry blogging starts about five minutes in, and also features the sultry voices of Kyle from The Chem Blog, and Josh Finkelstein, senior editor of Nature.

This might be the only post where the pic is bigger than the post. That's ok though.

hey, just wonder if you notice, something wrong with Paul's site. Has he gone for 4th July holiday?

Excimer said...

I haven't been able to get on it, but I don't know what's up.

Amanda said...

Awesome! Nice interview. It must be difficult to answer questions on the spot over the phone, but Excimer did a good job. He has quite a nice voice too :o)

I sound like an egotistical geek.

Though, in my defense, they removed my snarkisms. I had snark in there, dammit, and they removed it.

Chemgeek said...

pray tell, what was the snark? Give us a taste. Unless it's one of those "you had to be there" things.

Congrats on the exposure, fellas!

taitauwai said...

Oh... seems like some technical glitch. It's ok now. Pheew... For a moment there, I thought he has gone of for a long break.

Paul said...

A slight server fart. Everything's back.

And thanks for the kind words in the podcast!

Kutti said...

Great interview!

How did it come that they interviewed you?

ElwoodCity said...

I just heard it, and I thought you both represented really well.

And Kyle - if you sometimes sound like an egotistical geek, isn't that why we love you? I didn't think you sounded too full of yourself.

Kyle Finchsigmate said...

I snarked that my 3rd point was the one they really wanted to hear, assuming they would cut out the first two. I'm glad to see they didn't. They did, however, cut that bit out, which is possibly for the better, since that would have put my egotistical geek persona over the top.

WOW! You're famous! :-D

Stu said...

There's been the suggestion that we may post links from the Sceptical Chymist to substantially less edited versions of the blogger interviews - perhaps as soon as next week...

Mitch said...

Nature did a very good job of making that quite boring.

Excimer said...

they left out the part where they asked me about Mitch and I was like "that fuckin' guy?" which soon degenerated into a 20-minute rant about your mom. in spanish. yeah, they should have cut that part out. :-P
