NIAID Director Anthony Fauci on The Colbert Report

It isn't easy to have a conversation about AIDS with Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and make it funny.

Stephen Colbert did it last night, however, and he made the conversation interesting and incisive, too.

This is an excellent example of making science accessible to the public. Fauci provides statistics, explanations, and a bit of commentary on US health policy, while Colbert makes it fun and entertaining.

Here's a bonus: NIH Director Francis Collins and Colbert back in October 2009.
