Thanks to Katherine and Pat for their tips on locating a transcript of Gould's Latecomers. So far no luck online. Having begun the transcribing myself, I can see why that might be. The first 3 minutes nearly blew out my left hemisphere. 

It would be a kick to see what the Speaking Dragon program could do with Gould's cross-talking subjects. A new art form.

Does anyone know Lorne Tulk's email address?
