There is a short excerpt available at the University of Chicago Magazine.

Stephen Colbert interviewed Shubin recently on the Colbert Report. Here it is for easy access:

  2. I really liked the onpoint interview. It was my first time hearing him speak and enjoyed his enthusiasm. He is a fantastic speaker too and really knows his stuff.
