Bill and Chuck have a special chemistry together and it’s always a blast when they rendezvous for an episode of StarTalk. On this episode, they discuss many things including Bill’s documentary Bill Nye: Science Guy. Here’s a little more about the film:

…With intimate and exclusive access —as well as plenty of wonder and whimsy — this behind-the-scenes portrait of Nye follows him as he takes off his Science Guy lab coat and takes on those who deny climate change, evolution, and a science-based world view. The film features Bill Nye, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Ann Druyan, and many others.”

(BTW, if you’re a fan of science-based documentaries, don’t forget to also check out our episode Celebrating Voyager 1, with Carolyn Porco where Carolyn, Sean Ono Lennon, and Maeve Higgins chat with filmmaker Emer Reynolds on her documentary The Farthest which documents the creation, launch, and impact of Voyager 1.) 

Apart from Bill’s documentary, you’ll also hear Bill and Chuck discuss how we measure greenhouse gases in the atmosphere by measuring ancient ice, the Planetary Society’s citizen science approach to making solar sails a reality, and what every day people can do to help confront climate change.

Although we can’t go live from Sirius, the brightest star in the Earth’s night sky, yet, we are excited to bring you this episode from Sirius XM (originally recorded live) full of cosmic quandaries, quips, and quotes-to-be from two of the brightest stars in the StarTalk universe.

Please join us tomorrow night for Bill Nye Live from Sirius…XM  at 7pm ET right here on our website, as well as on Apple Podcasts, Google Play Music, SoundCloud, Stitcher, and TuneIn. If you’re an All-Access subscriber, you can watch or listen to this episode ad-free at 7pm, too.

That’s it for now. Keep Looking Up!
