If you have a sense of humor, Mary Roach is either already your favorite science
author or she's about to be. She came to Portland in 2017 to talk
about her latest book Grunt: The Curious Science of Humans at War, and our onstage interview ranged from
asking how she gets inspiration for her books to tips on how to
approach someone in special forces and ask if he's ever had
diarrhea while on a secret mission. We talk about her other books
too, and stick around for some audience questions at the end.
Also, this one is for Jamie. Miss you, and thanks for bringing cupcakes!

As always, a final thanks to Jonathan Coulton for the use of his song Mandelbrot Set as our theme music.
