The Dawn of A New Era at StarTalk Radio… with Your Help

StarTalk Radio is proud to be part of a community that loves science and cares about the future. We all share a mission: to popularize science, to show how important it is to our lives and that our best hope for the future lies in learning, questioning and exploring. In always looking up.

We’re about to begin a new era at StarTalk Radio, one where we can involve new sponsors in our content… and must, if we are to stay on the air, especially as our NSF funding wanes over time.

If you like StarTalk Radio, you’ve got a stake in this new era. You can help us create sponsorship situations that are appropriate to our mission. The world is filled with organizations forging our tomorrow. Wouldn’t you rather hear your company as presenting sponsor of our podcasts?

If your answer is yes, and you’d like your company to become more involved in our community through corporate sponsorship, please email

IMPORTANT: Some of you have suggested that we start a Kickstarter project or that we accept individual donations the way National Public Radio does. And while that may be in our future someday, right now we have to show “the powers that be” that major corporate sponsors are willing to join us in our mission to encourage people to get smarter about science. So if you do want to help, that’s the best way right now.
