Description

StarTalk Radio 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, Tyson makes regular appearances as the “nation’s expert on space” on major news programs and popular shows (Daily Show, Colbert Report). Tyson’s writings (such as The Sky is Not the Limit: Adventures of an Urban Astrophysicist) and NOVA specials (Origins, and NOVA ScienceNOW) have already won him a faithful media following. His most recent book, Death by Black Hole and Other Cosmic Quandaries reached the New York Times Best Seller List. Tyson was named Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential Persons in the World for 2007. StarTalk Radio bridges the intersection between Pop Culture and 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 comedian co-hosts, celebrities, and other special guests.

Completely tone-deaf casting of the co-host

Okay. Lynn Koplitz bothers me tremendously on this show. I probably wouldn't be as bothered, except for one major, major thing: in our culture, it has been readily assumed that women don't understand and don't care to understand sciences. A woman's voice comes through my headphones and says things like "When you start blah blah blahing about science, I don't care and no one else cares", then the soothing, competent male voice comes on to gently explain it to her? I would rather women not be involved in science podcasts if their level of involvement is akin to Barbie saying 'Math is hard.'

Neil. You already make science understandable for the average person. Science Barbie is not a welcome addition to your repertoire.

Good show, could be great...

I love Neil deGrasse Tyson and enjoy hearing him explain the cosmos. The only thing keeping this show from 5 stars is the cohost Lynne Koplitz. Seems like a nice person and I understand her purpose as the cohost to keep Neil's astrophysics talk in check, but I already feel Neil is good at that. So she just dumbs down the conversation too much, which can come across as annyoing and uncomfortable at times. Anyhow, as a testiment to how interesting Neil is, you could put someone running nails down a chalkboard next to him and I probably would still tune in and listen ;)

So much potential

Neil deGrasse Tyson is amazing. He's intelligent, clever, and accessible. Lynne Koplitz is quite possibly the least funny person in the known universe. Her voice is grating and her schtick is generic. I've never laughed, nor even even considered smiling at anything she's ever said. She is horrible. Neil needs someone in his own intellectual ballpark to have actual conversations with. I think he might owe her money. Or she has photos of him that he doesn't want released.

To echo previous comments, the show is dumbed down too much. They really need to raise the bar. If they did, I would highly recommend this. Five stars for Neil. Negative five trillion for Lynn.
