    Story

    Rising from the depths of the North Pacific lies a fabled island, now submerged just 15 feet below the surface of the ocean. Rumors and warnings about Cortes Bank abound, but among big wave surfers, this legendary rock is famous for one simple (and massive) reason: this is the home of the biggest rideable wave on the face of the earth.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Ghost Wave to be better than the print version?

    Yes! Hearing it in the authors voice and tone really add to the experience!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ghost Wave?

    I enjoyed the maritime history of the bank, but the whole story is compelling and builds to a satisfying end.

    Why is red meat red? How do they decaffeinate coffee? Do you wish you understood the science of food but don't want to plow through dry, technical books? In What Einstein Told His Cook, University of Pittsburgh chemistry professor emeritus and award-winning Washington Post food columnist Robert L. Wolke provides reliable and witty explanations for your most burning food questions, while debunking misconceptions and helping you interpret confusing advertising and labeling.

    What disappointed you about What Einstein Told His Cook?

    I was expecting more relativity or physics based food science rather than a science professor's chemically towing the standard FDA line.


    What could Robert L. Wolke have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It is a bit Newtonian or Cartesian and I would prefer more systematic sciences of how it relates to the environment and ecology, not to mention different cultures.


    Have you listened to any of Sean Runnette’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He is fine

    It was a pretty radical idea - a channel for teenagers, showing nothing but music videos. It was such a radical idea that almost no one thought it would actually succeed, much less become a force in the worlds of music, television, film, fashion, sports, and even politics. But it did work. MTV became more than anyone had ever imagined. I Want My MTV tells the story of the first decade of MTV, the golden era when MTV's programming was all videos, all the time, and kids watched religiously to see their favorite bands, learn about new music, and have something to talk about at parties.

    If you could sum up I Want My MTV in three words, what would they be?

    I grew up watching MTV and while I was not as addicted to it as some of my friends, remember how it changed us all. This audio is filled with all the key players accounts and fills in all the secrets. Many laughs!
