Cancelled: Watch Website for New Date—Science Series: David Pogue Talks Science
Cancelled—Watch website for new date
David Pogue, who writes a tech column for the New York Times and Scientific American and hosts about six segments a year for "CBS News Sunday Morning" (work that won him an Emmy in 2004), may be best known these days for his work on NOVA, the long-running PBS science show. His "Making Stuff," a 2011 four-part miniseries, won NOVA its highest ratings in six years—ratings that were surpassed only by Pogue's second Nova show, "Hunting the Elements" in 2012. In 2012, he was named the new host for the spinoff series "NOVA ScienceNow," which premiered in October 2012.
With over 3 million books in print, David is one of the world's bestselling how-to authors. He wrote or co-wrote seven books in the For Dummies series (including Macs, Magic, Opera, and Classical Music). In 1999, he launched his own series of complete, funny computer books called The Missing Manual series, which now includes 120 titles.
David graduated summa cum laude from Yale in 1985, with distinction in Music, and he spent ten years conducting and arranging Broadway musicals in New York. He's won an Emmy, a Loeb award for journalism, and an honorary doctorate in music. He's been profiled on "48 Hours" and "60 Minutes."
This is the second of an annual science program made possible by the Anne Eyes Endowment.
