Interview with Brian Wecht

Brian Wecht is a theoretical physicist with a degree in jazz composition, as well as one half of the comedy duo Ninja Sex Party. This is a shortened version of a much longer interview, in which he talks about students recognizing him from YouTube, combining an academic day job with comedy in the evenings, and choosing between a PhD in music and science.

It’s not the first time I’ve uploaded a conversation about theoretical physics and jazz composition, but it is the first interview to also mention American flag underwear and a warehouse full of hipsters.

Although science and music are separate parts of Brian’s life, he combines science with the stage in his capacity as co-founder of The Story Collider, where people tell stories about science. We didn’t talk about that in the interview, but it’s awesome and you should check it out.
