This is a podcast and interview of Jay A. Labinger about his book "the one culture?" that claims to have signified the end of the "science wars". He "is a chemist by training and continues to be active in research in catalysis and organometallic chemistry. In the last eight years or so he has also become involved in areas encompassing broader issues of science and has written articles and spoken at meetings on science and literature, sociology of science, and history of science.
