Interview with Professor Mark Alford – Quantum Physics and the Paranormal

On Sunday 6/5/11 I was privileged to speak with Professor Mark Alford about quantum physics and the paranormal. If you’re like us, you’ve heard weird, spooky sounding connections between ghosts, psychic powers, and even consciousness itself all tied to the behavior of subatomic particles. Not only is the evidence for any of the perceived paranormal phenomenon lacking, but the supposed relation to quantum realities is irresponsible.  Mark Alford, professor of physics at Washington University at St. Louis whose main research topic is in high density quark matter.

Michio Kaku

Jason and I were able to book an interview with Dr. Michio Kaku. Aside from having the coolest hair in the universe, Dr. Kaku is a theoretical physicist, best-selling author, and popularizer of science. His television program, “Sci Fi Science,” airs on the Science Channel and brings to life some of the concepts touched upon in his New York Times best-selling book “Physics of the Impossible.” His newest book, out now, is “Physics of the Future,” and takes a look at the technology that will be available in the year 2100.
