Interview with the Physicist
Jennifer Ouellette, Science Journalist in Residence, KITP

Being a good interview subject is difficult enough in print or radio formats. Television is even more difficult, because of the added visual element. Most of us are unaware of how we come across on camera. Diandra Leslie Pelecky -- condensed matter physicist and author of the newly published The Physics of NASCAR -- will talk briefly about her experiences being thrust into the national media spotlight to promote her book, and what she's learned in the process. Jerry Roberts, a professional journalist now on staff at UCSB, will conduct short videotaped interviews with Leslie-Pelecky, and with KITP's Joe Polchinski about his area of research. We will then watch the playback and make comments and critiques to help us all improve our on-camera presentations.
