Late in 2009 I got together with Richard Dawkins for a chat. Nice chap and some stimulating conversation.
Yup I appreciate the audio sucks. The leading reason were that I was primarily in Europe to do research, and when I left the US 2 months before this was not something that was seriously considered (I had VERY little AV kit with me) and that the discussion was all arranged on very short notice.- basically for a one man army there are limits to the things you can pull off.
Richard Dawkins is of course a big name in the defenders of science, publishing several best selling books and started a foundation that bears his name.
The foundation also has a youtube account.
