109. Freeman Dyson meets Wittgenstein (c. 1997)

“Next door to me there was Wittgenstein, who lived on the same staircase, and he always cooked for himself too, and so I used to cook my supper with the smell of fish from Wittgenstein’s room next door.” Sam Schweber talks to Freeman Dyson about his life. A four-minute clip from a Web of Stories video. The bit about Wittgenstein starts at 1:20.
