On the Radio

March 19, 2012

Seattle’s local public radio station, KUOW, invited me for a short interview on their daily show, Weekday with Steve Scher. We talked about the Facebook fellowship, our group’s work on approximate computing, UW CSE’s budget, and Harvey Mudd (my alma mater). You can hear the program in KUOW’s archives (my segment starts around 21:45). Steve is incredibly friendly and a fantastic interviewer; I had a great time with my ten minutes of public-radio fame.

Also, I had the pleasure of meeting Jack Hitt, one of my very favorite This American Life-ites, briefly in the green room. He was talking about his one-man show, Making Up the Truth, after my interview. His interview (also in the above audio archive) is way more interesting than mine.
