Science, what is good for? A lot
25 June 2016 | by tenshi_ippikiookamiSee all my reviews

"StarTalk" is a very interesting show about science and other "stuff", presented by the quite charming (and sometimes unable to let others finish their sentences) Neil deGrasse Tyson. Its format is quite simple: deGrasse Tyson and a couple of co-hosts (a comedian and an expert on the episode's subject) talk about science and different subjects (art, politics, medicine...) while jumping to segments of interviews the same deGrasse Tyson has done with "star" guests (George Takei, Christopher Nolan or Arianna Huffington) that are related also to that subject. For around 40 minutes, the viewer (or listener, as this is basically a podcast) can inform themselves about a different range of subjects, and improve (more or less critically) on their knowledge.

It is all very interesting and engaging, and deGrasse Tyson, his co- hosts and the guests keep things going, without the science becoming at any moment too difficult to understand. It is quite interesting to see how they try to relate the episode's subject to science and the world in general, even though the show sometimes suffers from being a little bit all over the place (or curiously patriotic, as when Bill Clinton and deGrasse Tyson comment on the Superconducting Super Collider not being on United States of America's ground; even though that is an eye-opener example of how politics work even in the progress of science).

Nonetheless it is a show absolutely worth checking and it will make the viewer think and learn and get interested in knowing more about, not only science, but a wide range of subjects. Fascinating and informing.
