Finally, An Insider's Look At Today's Stars That I Could Stomach

It is no piece of news that Neil deGrasse Tyson has a lot to say about science in the modern world (and how it got there), and enjoys saying it, and says it well. It was only a matter of time until someone gave him another and longer term opportunity to do so. Thankfully, the ones giving up the goods are sensible and not sensationalistic: National Geographic Channel (it occurs to me that might have sounded sarcastic: it wasn't).

After the critical success of Cosmos, NatGeo has opted to give Tyson a televised spinoff of his popular podcast StarTalk. Each episode will be filmed in Tyson' Hayden Planetarium in Brooklyn, and feature Tyson discussing science and science-related popular culture with scientists and scientist-related celebrities. And each episode will conclude with a one minute rant from former and forever Science Guy, Bill Nye, who is a regular contributor and guest on the podcast, as well as general side kick of Tyson's. They be Science Buddies.

It won't make up for Colbert being off the air. But it'll be close.
