  • The one-and-only "Wired" magazine comes to TV

    One of my favorite documentary series of recent years, and not just because I was in it : ) My meteorite hunting partner, Steve Arnold, and I were invited by the "Wired" team to appear in their one-hour pilot. They were one of three companies competing for a new science series on PBS, and our pilot was the winner. We filmed the "Meteorite Hunters" segment in Kiowa County, Kansas and unearthed a 50-lb visitor from outer space for the camera. Host Adam Rogers was a delight to work with, and I felt the entire show had a modern and exciting feel to it. Here's hoping "Wired Science" will continue. A cutting edge, yet accessible program. Great job.moreless
