Michio Kaku has joined the Talk Radio Network, where he will have a new radio show called “Science Fantastic” that will appear on 90 radio stations around the country. Topics that will be covered include “black holes, higher dimensions, string theory, wormholes, search for extra-terrestial life, dark matter and dark energy, the future of space travel, genetic engineering, the aging process, the future of medicine, the human body shop, artificial intelligence, the future of computers and robots, as well as topics from science fiction.”
The blurb at Talk Radio Network describes Kaku as “one of the world’s leading experts in theoretical physics, and according to New York Magazine, one of the ‘100 Smartest People in New York.'” It goes on:
Dr. Kaku is the co-founder of string field theory, one of the main branches of string theory, the leading candidate for the unified field theory. Many in the scientific field call this “The new Copernican revolution.”
Kaku’s appearance on Talk Radio Network is rather remarkable, given that many of the other talk show hosts there are extremist purveyors of right-wing sewage like Michael Savage and Laura Ingraham. In the past, Kaku has been known for his left-wing politics, hosting a radio show entitled Explorations on New York lefty radio station WBAI, rebroadcast on other Pacifica stations such as KPFA in Berkeley.
