About This Episode

Now extended with Neil and Bill Nye talking Fahrenheit, Celsius, Kelvin, global warming, cavemen, accountants, Isaac Newton, Santa, and Christmas in “How Tweet It Is.”

Get into the spirit (or should we say science?) of the season when Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice answer fan questions about the holidays and winter. Is it true that no two snowflakes are alike? Why is it cold during the winter? Could Santa be exploiting the multiverse to hide his workshop and deliver his toys on Christmas Eve? Could Santa’s sleigh travel at the speed of light? Neil and Chuck discuss the importance of ritual in people’s lives when Neil answers the question, “Should parents let their children believe in Santa?” and Neil shares what he told his daughter about the Tooth Fairy and Santa. As an extra present for our fans, you’ll get to hear Neil’s recommendations for what to do in NYC during the holidays and his favorite holiday drinks, including how he makes his own homemade eggnog.
