This is a particularly fascinating "Not My Job" episode of NPR's quiz show Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! The guest is Brian May, co-founder and lead guitarist of the rock group, Queen. But what leaps out in host Peter Sagal's interview is discovering that he -- actually, really, truly -- has a PhD in astrophysics! Honest. And the story of how he got it, after some roadblocks, is all the more fun. As are the panelists' fascination with it all, and their greater-involvement in the questions than usual, filled with Queen references. Along with the discussion of his passion for 3-D photography. It's all charming, remarkable and great fun.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
