Ideas Roadshow

Ideas Roadshow is a multimedia venture that produces and publishes long-format conversations in video format and accompanying eBooks (and audio files) on a wide range of intriguing topics. The interviews are conducted with celebrated scientists, researchers, authors and other experts across a variety of disciplines.

Each 'issue'' consists of a video, accompanying eBook and audio file. Each video is 60 minutes long (some of the first ones are longer) and is broken into chapters to best highlight the ideas under discussion. The eBooks contain an introductory essay (written by Howard), an unabridged, reworked full transcript of the conversation (separated into chapters), brief bio of the guest and a comprehensive set of links and references to further explore the topic, indexed to chapters.

Subjects include Astronomy, Cognitive Science, Education, Environmental Studies, History, Language and Linguistics, Mathematics, Music and Philosophy just to name a few.
