Andrew Denton ruined this interview with a bunch of stupid questions, like "How do you define...blah blah...?" It the end it sounds like a showbiz talk show, rather than an intellectually engaging conversation.
Agreed. However I can see his motive for asking such questions. He was trying to unveil a more personal side of Dawkins instead of the scientific side, which as you saw is nearly impossible with a man like himself. :)It's kind of ironic though that Dawkins responded by saying "you can look it up in a dictionary," because it was himself who's said in the past "Dictionaries don't define words, they just give you the common usage."
That was the most awkward interview I've ever seen.
I like Andrew Denton's work as a rule, but this was a train wreck. Landing an interview with Richard Dawkins is a great opportunity, but in my humble view it was wasted. To try and be constructive, maybe Denton should have had some backup questions in case his "personal" experiment didn't work.
I have a request, the complete interview Dawkins had with Wendy Wright has disappeared from youtube and I can't find it anywhere. If you could provide this for download it would be much appreciated.
