Science journalist Robert Krulwich, the "man who simplifies without being simple", as New York Magazine called him, takes the chair of the 92nd Street Y to interview that very un-simple computer innovator, Steve Wozniak. Wozniack, or "Woz", is the genius who invented the Apple I and Apple II micro-computers in the late '70s (when he was in his 20s) and became Steve Jobs’s partner in the creation of Apple Computer.

Woz is a fun, funny, fast-talking "regular guy" who recalls his early scientific experiences, experiments, and successes in this quick, fascinating listen. Apple fans will be delighted to hear the personal side of Woz, as well.
