LAN professor interviewed for NPR Radiolab

quixoteLAN Professor and Chairperson Bruce Burningham was recently interviewed for the NPR science program Radiolab.  “Is our obsession with blurring the boundaries of reality a new thing? Or has it always been there? Everybody’s heard of the book Don Quixote, but we had no idea how totally insane, and how stirringly modern, Miguel Cervante’s masterpiece really was. It’s a story within a story within a story that beat Seinfeld to the punch by more than 400 years.”
