On this week’s Make: Talk, we’ll be chatting with John Edgar Park, host of the Makers Workshop segment of Make: television. John will be talking to us about the show and about his articles in MAKE, especially the Florence Siphon Coffee Brewer from Volume 17. John is also a “character mechanic” for Disney and was responsible for the hamster physics in the movie Bolt. Character mechanic? Hamster physics? And I thought I had a cool job!

Mark is on the road this week, so Dale and I will be joined in the virtual studio by Keith Hammond, MAKE magazine’s Copy Chief and our liaison with Make: television. Be sure to call in to talk with us and for prizes that we’ll be giving away during the show!
