Good interview Sara! I have listened to interviews with Craig before and he aways strikes me as one of those dry savant like guys that probably is actually quite funny once you get him to loosen up. I’d guess he has a few Jack Kerouac books tucked away and more prominently displays his Steven Hawking books. 🙂

I like that he’s a John Stewart fan and a House fan!

Craig is no doubt an interesting guy and extremely bright…

That was a fun listen 🙂
