Neil deGrasse Tyson's Star Talk Radio Joins Nerdist Channel Network

Speaking of Neil Tyson, if you’re a fan of his you’ll be pleased to know that his show, "Star Talk Radio," is now going to be part of the Nerdist Channel network! That's actually a pretty big deal; Chris Hardwick has created this juggernaut of Nerdist, and it reaches a lot of folks.

The new show is essentially a video version of the radio show. Chris interviewed Neil about it for the Nerdist website. If you’re curious what it’ll be like, here’s a video of a live "Star Talk" interview he did with several comedians (Hodgman! Schaal!) and Mike Massamino, a NASA astronaut:

Cool, eh? And maybe I’ll have more news about this soon, too. Superman isn’t the only guy who walks around in his underwear Neil has talked to.
