I interview award-winning popular science writer Mary Roach about her new book Fuzz: When Nature Breaks the Law. It's a humorous look at the serious topic of human-animal conflict in an age of exploding population and global warming.

This was Mary's third appearance on American Freethought. Listen to her first two appearances here:

099 - Mary Roach (Packing for Mars)

250 - Mary Roach (Grunt)


(Briefly mentioned in the interview) The snail darter--a tiny fish once on the endangered species list--is back in the news!

Twenty years after 9/11: I look back at fact-versus-fiction in the root causes of the terrorist attacks, and assess our success after two decades of fighting the so-called War on Terror.
