StarTalk, from Curved Light Productions, is the first and only popular commercial radio program devoted to all things space and is hosted by renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. As Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History, President of the Planetary Society, and People Magazine’s
Sexiest Astrophysicist Alive, Tyson makes regular appearances as the “nation’s expert on space” on major news programs and popular shows (Daily Show, Colbert Report).
StarTalk will bridge the intersection between Pop Culture and Pop Science with clarity, humor and passion. Captivating subjects—such as space travel, extra-terrestrial life, the Big Bang, the future of our Earth and the environment, and breaking news from the universe—will all be explored.
Hilarity ensues as Tyson is joined each week by co-host and comedienne Lynne Koplitz of Comedy Central fame. Chiming in with her irreverent and pointed humor she represents the everyman and brings science down to Earth.
The program also features special guests and celebrity interviews. When asked what specific topics will be explored, Tyson said: “Everything under the sun… Or rather under the universe!” He continued by saying his audience would be “All the people who never knew how much they’d love learning about space and science.” One of the world’s most innovative space explorers will be interviewed in one of the first broadcasts.
Listeners may call in with questions and voice opinions on anything from Global Warming to Worm Holes to Sex in Space. Get smart and get entertained by StarTalk as mysteries are investigated, myths are exposed and truths are revealed!
