For A Good Time On The InterTubes (Self Aggrandizement Alert)
Most of you probably know that I published a book (my fourth!) a couple of years ago: Newton and the Counterfeiter. (Kindle, Nook, Indiebound, Powell’s multiplatform ebook and Powell’s, Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Amazon UK, audio version, Your Local Book Store)
As you all also know, two or three years is a lifetime in book years, so I’ve been doing almost no talking or promotion on that project for a while.
That changes in a few hours, when I’ll spend an hour on Skeptically Speaking with Marie-Claire Shanahan talking Newton, crime, the birth of the modern idea of money, and wherever else the conversation wanders. The show starts at 8 p.m. EDT, 6 p.m. MDT, and will go up as a podcast next Friday. Listen here, and or subscribe via iTunes.
It probably isn’t too much of a spoiler to say that it wasn’t the brightest move of even a genuinely clever criminal to try to match wits with my man Izzy. Just sayin….
