Science Writer Mary Roach Plays Not My Job

Mary Roach is a science writer who likes to tackle the big and scary topics: death, in her book Stiff, and sex, in her book Bonk. Her latest, Packing For Mars, is about preparing human beings to travel in space.

In honor of the 25th anniversary of the release of Super Mario Brothers, we'll ask Mary three questions about the virtual life and legend of Mario and his video game friends.
