I followed the promotion to hear “Bill Nye’s Advice to Tackle Climate Change” and it was just him reading from his recent book. He tells how he flew (!) to China for a conference and is bothered by the fact that Chinese people want to use cars instead of bicycles to improve their lives. Curse them! They want to live like he does!
You have Bill Nye for 8 minutes and all he does is plug his book. The host has is dry and the questions are amateur at best.

Neat little podcast that pushes science forward. Each is not too wordy, long or too detailed yet provides the listener with a tidbit of useable information. Nowadays most young people see science as too hard, boring or not worth the time or effort. These podcasts bring applicable science to everyday situations with the intent of sparking interest to study the subject further. In other words, he shares the information in hopes you’ll get bitten by the science bug. His passion to share science with inquisitive minds show - especially Chemistry.
Soccer moms, this is an awesome podcast for the captive audience on the way to/from practice.
