What Is StarTalk All-Stars?

We’ll let our Co-Executive Producers, Helen Matsos and Neil deGrasse Tyson, tell you about the show:

“We want to get even more people talking about science, and so we’re broadening the franchise. More diversity in our hosting and guests – I think it’s safe to say there’s never been a science show hosted by this diverse a group of PhDs! In addition to the formats our fans have come to know, like our highly popular Cosmic Queries episode format where fans ask the questions via social media and then our hosts and guest scientists provide the answers, sight unseen, we’re going to be trying out some new approaches as well,” said Helen Matsos, who is also the CEO of Curved Light Productions, LLC which produces both podcasts and co-produces StarTalk on the National Geographic Channel.

“That we can spin off a second podcast blending science with humor and pop culture, is further evidence that science is trending,” added Neil deGrasse Tyson. “I looked around at my fellow scientists and science educators and saw an unplumbed pool of inspiring and enthusiastic talent standing ready to feed the growing, voracious hunger the public has for science.”
