Isaac Asimov on Dick Cavett Show 1989
Isaac Asimov is one of the most popular guests that Dick Cavett (so intelligent and charming) interviewed in his long career. This is a casual discussion that lets the viewer get to know what Asimov was like. In part one Asimov explains how we can time travel, why time is different where gravity is stronger, about writing screenplays versus novels, about AIDs, about Carl Sagan and Marvin Minsky, particle physics, evolution versus the Bible, theory versus facts,and evolution.
In part two Asimov talks about his career as a writer and his earliest books, what he reads for fun, his upbringing, his predictions, robots, pseudoscience, science education, why crystals cure people, what makes good science fiction, limiricks, solving puzzles, writer’s block, memory, and more. Lots of fun.
