The Science of Cronenberg: Transcript 02

DAVID CRONENBERG: So I was very interested in, though, Sci-Fi writing. Interested in Isaac Asimov because he was a writer who was also a scientist. And that’s what I thought would happen to me. I really loved the sciences, and I was good at them. In high school my science teachers thought I would be a scientist and my English teachers thought I would be a writer. And I thought I should be both.
