MIT Media Lab: MLTalks

Founded in 1985, the MIT Media Lab is dedicated to supporting interdisciplinary (or "antidisciplinary") research and to "the study, invention, and creative use of digital technologies to enhance the ways that people think, express, and communicate ideas, and explore new scientific frontiers." As part of this mission, the organization hosts a number of MLTalks, which are public interviews with a range of experts that include scholars, writers, doctors, artists, and others. On MIT Media Lab's website, interested visitors can listen to and view recordings of previous MLTalks. In one recent talk, MIT Media Lab Associate Director Andrew Lippman talks to historian and New Yorker contributor Jill Lepore about the history of evidence. In another recent talk, Joe Paradiso of the Media Lab interviews science fiction writer Neal Stephenson. Each MLTalk is approximately ninety minutes in length and features a short lecture by the featured guest, followed by a robust interview and question and answer period.
