Neil deGrasse Tyson: Starry Messages, Science, Culture, and Life (origins podcast)
Neil deGrasse Tyson is one of the most recognizable faces of science in the world, and for good reason. He has thought a lot about how to engage people in the wonder and joy of science, something that is also near and dear to Lawrence’s own heart, and to the spirit of many of Lawrence’s own activities, including The Origins Podcast. We were so happy that Neil agreed to return to have another dialogue on the podcast following the release of his new book, Starry Messenger, because it provided us with the opportunity to have the kind of give and take discussion that Lawrence enjoys having with him, and which is important for people to get to watch. Neil and Lawrence share many of the same sensibilities but they don’t agree about everything, and their perspectives are sometimes different. They try to share those different perspectives with each other by respectful dialogue, and discussion.
