Isaac Asimov on The David Letterman Show, October 21, 1980
Isaac Asimov is a guest on the David Letterman late night show in 1980. At that time he had 221 published books, including an autobiography that he had speaks about in this appearance. He talks about his life, his way of writing, the topics that interest him, about science fiction, Star Wars, the space race andn space exploration. He enumerates the predictions that he made which became true by the time of this interview and makes predictions about the future that have since come to be, such as gene therapy, pocket size computers, and the huge expansion and omnipresence of media. As expected with interviews on the David Letterman Late Night show, there is humor interspersed with the informative content and revelations of Asimov’s personality. This is an entertaining video.
