Podcast of Interest: Lab Out Loud, Episode 14. “Bill Nye the Science Guy”June 1, 2010
In this second post in my ‘Podcasts of Interest’ series, where I comment on podcasts with provocative or important science or mathematics content, I bring you another Lab Out Loud episode. Episode 14 features Bill Nye the Science Guy. Need I say more? No, but I will.
The whole episode is a joy to listen to. Mr. Nye tells us about how he got started in the science entertainment biz (hint: Steve Martin played a role). He also talks about his passion for conserving energy and gives advice on small changes to your home that can make a big difference.
Toward the end of the show, he and the hosts wade into some policy through some back-and-forth about the Science DebatesM that had been proposed for presidential candidates in the 2008 campaign. Mr. Nye’s opinion on those debates is very interesting. This discussion starts at 23:26 and last through the end of the show at 26:50.
