Richard Dawkins interview

24 Sep

It’s not every day you get to meet Richard Dawkins. In August, I visited the great man at his Oxford home to interview him for BBC Focus magazine. Topics of conversation included his 40-year run of books (beginning with The Selfish Gene in 1976), the evidence for evolution, the possibilities of extraterrestrial life, and the public reaction to The God Delusion (anyone who’s not seen this video of Dawkins reading out some of his hate mail should remedy that now).

You can read my interview in the October 2015 issue of BBC Focus:
