Albany, NY – Theoretical physicist and novelist are not professions usually thought of together, but Janna Levin combines them with a hip, rock-and-roll aplomb. In this interview with host Gretchen Holbrook Gerzina, Levin talks about her latest book "A Madman Dreams of Turing Machines." The book follows the lives of two real-life mathematicians, Kurt Godel and Alan Turing, brilliant scientists who found themselves confounded by normal life.
