Biology and Science Fiction on Tech Nation

I just came across the Tech Nation/Biotech Nation podcast*, which interviews scientists and authors once a week. Browsing through their archives, I came across a couple of interviews with science fiction writers:

April 8, 2008: Interview with Scott Sigler, author of Infected
Dr. Moira Gunn speaks with Scott Sigler, who talks about his bioterror thriller "Infected." While it's based on the premise of a biological weapon on the loose, he's actually a modern day Charles Dickens.
August 14, 2007: Interview with Richard Morgan, author of Thirteen
Dr. Moira Gunn speaks with Richard Morgan about what life may be like after a hundred years of biotech. Morgan explains we'll have gotten plenty right and plenty wrong.
