Steven Weinberg: ‘The Universe Speaks in Numbers’ podcast

27 October 2014

Steven Weinberg is perhaps the world’s most accomplished physicist. In dozens of brilliant contributions, he has shed light on all four fundamental forces of nature and is also a brilliant commentator on physics and its place in culture. In this dazzling interview with Graham, Weinberg reflects on on his youthful passion for science, his first steps as a researcher, and the golden years in which he and others finalised the Standard Model of particle physics. With his trademark wit and trenchancy, Weinberg also tells us his views about the relationship between mathematics and physics.

This and the other interviews in the series – given to Graham by world-class mathematicians and physicists, and by other distinguished thinkers – are available on the podcast The Universe Speaks in Numbers. The podcast complements Graham’s book with the same title.
