Whenever the announcer gives out the phone number for Karl Kruszelnicki’s famous Science Talkback show on Triple J, on Thursday mornings – so many calls come in that the ABC switchboard crashes!

He made his TV debut in 1985 as the presenter of the first series of Quantum. Since 1986 he has reported science as a regular on the Midday Show, Good Morning Australia (including a full-time stint in 1991-2 as the TV Weatherman and science reporter). He is currently a regular on Channel 7’s breakfast program Sunrise. He has recently completed two series on quirky weather topics for the Weather Channel on Foxtel. Karl also popularises science on radio stations across Australia and, on the BBC, for several hours each week.

Karl has written (so far) 23 books, beginning with Great Moments In Science in 1984 and his latest book Great Mythconceptions Cellulite, Camel Humps and Chocolate Zits which was released in November 2004, went straight to Number 5 on the best seller list for non-fiction books. According to the “New Scientist” Magazine Karl’s last five books have all hit the position of best-selling Popular Science book in Australia.

In 1996 Karl was invited by the United States Information Agency to be a Distinguished Foreign Guest in their International Visitor Program. Previous Alumni of this program include Julius Nyere, Anwar Sadat, Indira Ghandi and Margaret Thatcher. As part of this program he visited NORAD, Dryden Air Force Base and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and got to sit in the front seat of an SR-71 Blackbird.

In August 2000 Karl was one of first eight Australian Apple Masters to be announced (there are fewer than 100 in the entire world). The Apple Masters Program celebrates the achievements of people who are changing the world through their passion and vision, while inspiring new approaches to creative thinking.
