"StarTalk" Radio Show

Neil degrasse Tyson and Eugene Mirman live at the BellHouse in Brooklyn

"StarTalk," with host and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, is a groundbreaking weekly talk radio show that uses a unique combination of comedy and celebrity star power to pull the science out of the ordinary and pull the pop culture out of the scientific, no matter what the subject. Captivating subjects such as space travel, extraterrestrial life, the big bang, the future of the Earth and the environment, and breaking news from the universe are explored with clarity, humor and passion.

The show's mission is to entice and enchant a broad, undiscovered commercial audience with the wonders of space and science using an innovative format. "StarTalk" was originally conceived to occupy the commercial broadcast space of talk radio but also appears on iTunes and Internet video channels as well as live performance.
