19 Dec 2022 • 110 min • EN


For a lot of people black holes and string theory were topics that were filed in the mental box labelled ‘things I will never be able to get my head around”. However, all changed when Neil deGrasse Tyson began appearing on TV screens. Neil’s passion and energy for science is infectious and the reason why he is one of the world’s greatest science communicators. This fascination has lasted ever since childhood where he felt the universe reach out to him at the same planetarium he is now the director of. But while Neil was obsessed with the cosmos he was often brought back to earth, having to deal with racial prejudice and stereotyping as he followed his passion. In this conversation Neil discusses his quest in raising the global knowledge of space, the universe and the world’s beyond our own.  Topics:  Early context  Your parents direct influence  Your father being called the N word  How to decide what I want to do with my life  What are you concerned about with the human race  Social media polarisation  Do we matter  Where does happiness and meaning come from?  Whats required for a happy life for you?  The perfect way to tell stories  What do you struggle with  Mental health  The last guest’s question Neil:   Twitter - Instagram -  Neil's book: Watch the episodes on Youtube:  Follow us on Telegram:  Sponsors:  Huel -  Intel -  BlueJeans -  Craftd -
