Our Editor's Take

The StarTalk Radio podcast takes into consideration the entire scientific world. Host Neil deGrasse Tyson says that the show discusses “everything under the sun, or rather under the universe!” The Hayden Planetarium head makes scientific topics accessible. He has an engaging and friendly personality.

While the title of the podcast is StarTalk Radio, the podcast has a broader focus. It is much more than astronomy and asteroids. This show also talks about everything from nuclear energy to autopsies. Listeners may appreciate the program for encouraging audiences to take an interest in science. It's not all serious, though. Tyson has a rotating group of guest comedians on the show to keep things funny. And many reviews cite the podcast as a fun and informative way to learn about the world. Tyson does have scientists as guests, but also chats with celebrities like Joseph Gordon-Levitt about a variety of topics, fromtime travel to acting.

In each episode, Tyson brings audiences on a journey through fascinating topics. He's a wonderful host to help listeners explore some of the world's biggest questions. Tyson holds degrees from Harvard and Columbia. And the scientist has researched stars, the Milky Way, and other galaxies. Tyson answers many cosmic queries on StarTalk Radio. He also talks about how bowlers can work to get a perfect 300 the next time they visit the bowling alley.

This podcast is great for listeners interested in exploring the universe's biggest questions. It's also fun for those who want to hear the host talk about pop culture.
