About Marc Levenson:
Marc Levenson has traveled the world in search of new worlds in science, technology and medicine. From his groundbreaking coverage of robotic heart surgery to a landmark Moscow interview with Russia's fusion pioneer Dr. Andrei Sakharov, Levenson has devoted his career to making science and medicine more accessible and easier to understand. He argues that science, technology, and especially biotechnology, get limited coverage on television and radio because people fear what they don't understand. His novel, fun approach relies on using everyday familiar objects as metaphors to make science more relevant to a non-scientific audience. Levenson's professional career spans more than thirty years, and includes science reporting for CBS, CNN, PBS, and TechTV, and now his weekly syndicated series, Tech Closeup. His dedication has earned him three Emmy Awards, a Cine Golden Eagle, and numerous Associated Press Awards.
