First, a little about Neil deGrasse Tyson. Frankly, he is the most down-to-earth astrophysicist on the planet. He can break down these amazingly complex ideas like string theory and quasars, in a way that is both entertaining and easily understood by those of us without a Ph.D. in Physics. You can read his full credentials on the StarTalk website.
The hosts regularly hold “Cosmic Queries” shows where Tyson answers listener-submitted questions without having read them ahead of time. The show is funny, interesting and educational too. What more can you ask for?!
Some of the more recent shows you can list to via podcast or online include:
- Cosmic Queries: Viruses, Outbreaks and Pandemics
- Cosmic Queries: Dark Matter and Dark Energy
- The Science of Hip Hop with GZA (Part 2)
- Zombie Apocalypse (Part 1)
