The show notes included:

"Notre Dame University physics professor, Barabasi explores the relationships of various kinds of complex networks from cells and epidemics, to the World Wide Web, with a bit of 'Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon' in between. In accessible language and with humor, Barabasi explains how seemingly unrelated types of networks, for example corporations, social networks, living organisms, are more similar than previously thought. Barabasi is the author of Linked: How Everything is Connected to Everything Else and What It Means for Business, Science, and Everyday Life."
