Zombies, Sinkholes, Beer, and Moonshine: Mixed Taste 2013

This August, I am headed to Colorado to participate in lecture series hosted by The Museum of Contemporary Art Denver. MCA Denver's weekly series Mixed Taste throws together two speakers most Thursday evenings over in the Summer. The catch is that the talks — at least at a glance — have little to do with another.

This Summer's lineup covers zombies, the Austrian avante garde, cliff diving, performance enhancing drugs, and more. I'll be talking August 22nd about moonshine: what it is, what it's not, and why something predicted to die out forty years ago is still making headlines. Joining me is Jason Marden from the University of Colorado to talk about game theory.

One of us talks for twenty minutes, then the other one does the same, and then...then, I think we mud wrestle. Or maybe open up the mic to the audience to take questions.

The lineup makes me wish I were around Denver more often:
June 6 Zombies & Raw Milk Cheese
June 13 Honky Tonk & Paper Recordings
June 20 Comedic Opera & Vulcan Steel
June 27 Houdini & Déjà Vu
July 11 Sinkholes & Wormholes
July 18 Draft Beer & Draft Urbanism
July 25 Fiscal Cliff & Cliff Diving
August 1 YBAs & UFOs
August 8 Refrigeration & the Austrian Avant Garde
August 15 Sandhill Cranes & Performance Enhancing Drugs
August 22 Game Theory & Moonshine
August 29 Tyrannosaurus Rex & Lucha Libre
