Stephen Colbert interviews Steven Pinker!

If you have been reading likealake lately, you might have noticed that I have been making numerous posts about Steven Pinker. Well, can't help it. He has just been in the public eye a lot recently. Not to mention that he's the MAN! And I mean that in all seriousness. He's an important figure in cognitive science and has done a hell of a lot to popularize the field of Evolutionary Psychology. Pinker is one of those celebrity-status academics who kind of just take hold of your attention.

So, without further ado, here's an awesome video of Stephen Colbert interviewing Steven Pinker on the Colbert Report. It's pretty funny. The video is broken up into 2 parts. Of course Colbert had to make the hair joke, but other than that it seems Pinker endured the interview unscathed. It's really good so check it out!
