About This Episode
Science really is everywhere. On this episode of StarTalk Radio, we bring you the first part of StarTalk at BAM – Science is Everywhere. Back in March, we had a great time at the Brooklyn Academy of Music highlighting the shows under the StarTalk Podcast Network banner. In Part 1, you’ll hear StarTalk Radio and StarTalk All-Stars. To start, Neil deGrasse Tyson is joined by comic co-host Chuck Nice and theoretical physicist and author Brian Greene to discuss the early universe. You’ll hear about the “Cosmic Dark Ages” and what we know about the first stars born in the universe. Discover more about the Big Bang, string theory, and time on a universal scale. Then, rapper and science communicator Baba Brinkman freestyles a rap about the show that just happened. Next, we put a cap on StarTalk Radio and move right into StarTalk All-Stars. Neil hands the hosting baton to neuroscientist and All-Stars host Heather Berlin as she leads us in a discussion about the intersection of neuroscience and physics. We explore free will: our current neuroscientific understanding of it and if physics has anything to say about it. Come back next week for Part 2 to finish the StarTalk All-Stars segment and to enjoy our presentation of Playing with Science.
