I was listening to the sciam podcast and Steve metioned the interviewer as Josh. (in a live interview at a meeting)

And I swear he sounded just like Fraser... not just the Canadian accent, but the inflections and mannerisms.

Weird.

(I guess this is more of a statement than a question.. but who is Josh?)

Like, which episode?

Was it Josh Simon (http://www.astro.caltech.edu/~jsimon/research.html)?

What's The Matter?: Cold Dark Matter and the Milky Way's Missing Satellites (http://www.sciam.com/podcast/episode.cfm?id=A2B71EFB-ABFA-C6D7-0A728C56892215F8)


The annual meeting of the American Astronomical Society took place earlier this month in Austin, Texas. Scientific American's expert astronomy editor, George Musser, attended and he got a chance to speak with Josh Simon, the Robert Millikan fellow—to oil drop a name—at the California Institute of Technology. You've got your regular matter and your dark matter, which physicists and astronomers think makes up most of the stuff in the universe.

That's him. Thank you! ( edit: Or whoever was doing the interviewing... not the interviewee)
But he was one of the two.


I couldn't place it.


It's one of those things where you know a little part of a melody, but you can't think of the artist or the name of the song.

I found it... The person I thought was Fraser was George Musser.

They really do sound alike.
