Podcast of the Week: Neil deGrasse Tyson on Why Science Needs Beyoncé

It’s always fun to hear Neil deGrasse Tyson talk to a humble nerd, which is why this interview with James Altucher is special. Highlights include the idea that people who want to communicate should seek to build a presence across multiple channels, i.e. both of them write books, blog, podcast, speak, etc., and that people need both story and purpose in their own terms – so while everyone may not know astrophysics, they do know Beyoncé, and it’s the educators job to make the concept clear in terms they can understand. Altucher and Tyson may have different professions, but their personalities have a ton in common – think about that while listening.
