Astrophysicist, director of the Hayden Planetarium and all-round awesome educator Neil deGrasse Tyson has brought his radio program to YouTube.
StarTalk is possibly one of the geekiest — and most entertaining — podcasts out there. Co-hosted by deGrasse Tyson and comedian Eugene Mirman, it doesn't just talk about astrophysics, but also a whole range of topics that are relevant to our interests.
Favourites have included the science of time, the science of ghosts, the science of superheroes and — newly added to the YouTube channel — the science of video games, with special guests Will Wright of The Sims fame and Jeff Ryan, author of Super Mario: How Nintendo Conquered America.
There are only four episodes so far, but we're delighted at a new way to consume one of our favourite programs.
