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!
