Then join us at 11am or 7pm Pacific time, 19:00/03:00 UK time, for the latest in our series of interviews with cultural movers and shakers. This week, Meatball meets the Dinosaur!

James Gurney, the author/illustrator of the four Dinotopia books, talks with Meatball Fulton about where his ideas come from, his fantasies and dreams, and even building flying machines. He tells of the time he “rode the rails” (sleeping in boxcars) from California to New York City, while stopping to sketch people and places along the way. And of course, Jim talks about his favorite subject, dinosaurs! Meatball was amazed to discover that paleontologists now believe many dinosaurs had feathers, even baby tyrannosaurs! Gadzooks!
