Scientist-turned-filmmaker Randy Olson talks about his new book, "Don't Be Such a Scientist: Talking Substance in an Age of Style." The book draws on his 30 year journey from being a tenured professor of marine biology to becoming the maker of such documentary features as "Flock of Dodos: The Evolution-Intelligent Design Circus," (Tribeca, '06, Showtime) and "Sizzle: A Global Warming Comedy" (Outfest '08). Olson's basic message for the communication of science to the general public is that it's great to BE a scientist, but just try not to be SUCH a scientist.
