Filmmaker Tom Levenson - Prof of Science Writing at  MIT and front pager at Balloon Juice - welcomes filmmaker and science writer Tim Ferris, best known for his books on cosmology: The Red Limit, Coming of Age in the Milky Way and The Whole Shebang. Tim's films include three feature documentaries on PBS, including, most recently, Seeing in the Dark

They talk about Tim’s most recent book, The Science of Liberty. Published 2010, it is both a historical essay examining what Tim argues is the essential connection between liberalism and scientific thinking (and vice versa). Tom comments here.
