Show Preview: Neil deGrasse Tyson interviews Mythbuster Adam Savage

During my first week on the job, I had the opportunity to visit the YouTube studios in Manhattan to meet Neil deGrasse Tyson in person. I knew he was filming a segment for an upcoming show that would run on StarTalk Radio and The Nerdist Channel on YouTube, but I had no idea who the guest celebrities might be. A science professor studying the physics of time travel? An astronomer who had discovered evidence of extraterrestrial life in the universe? Actor and rising Facebook star George Takei, who played Sulu on Star Trek?

No, as Neil emerged from the studio, he was followed closely by Adam Savage, one of Discovery Channel’s Mythbusters, which is a show I love. (My favorite episode: when they proved that diving under water actually did protect you from bullets! What was yours? Bust out with us in the comments and let us know.)

It’s not a myth: Neil deGrasse Tyson will be interviewing Adam Savage of Mythbusters in an upcoming episode of StarTalk Radio.

I can’t tell you when the show with Adam is going to run, but as soon as we have an air date, we’ll post it in all the usual places.

That’s it for now.

Keep Looking Up!
