Recommendation: StarTalk Radio

Give me a top 5 list of today’s best modern science communicators. I’m willing to bet Neil DeGrasse Tyson, and Bill Nye “the science guy” are on that list. What could be better than a show in which both are hosts? Not much if you ask me. So for your weekly dose of science I point you to StarTalk Radio. Now available on; TV, Stitcher, iTunes, SiriusXM, and many more. Basically, almost any way that you like to listen to podcasts, or watch videos, you can find StarTalk.

The show features great interviews, and a cosmic queries section in which people write into the show to ask the hosts questions. Neil DeGrasse Tyson is the director of the Hayden Planetarium and American Museum of Natural History. He is the primary host of the show, but the show is also occasionally hosted by Bill Nye CEO of the Planetary Society. Bill Nye also hosts regular science segments on the show.

Each show is also co-hosted by a comedian or two, most often Chuck Nice and Eugene Mirman, whom add colorful commentary and keeps the show light and entertaining regardless of the subject.

And as always, keep looking up.
