Something strange happened recently.
It’s an awesome book, all about the many ways in which nature and the universe can destroy this pale blue dot of a planet. It’s a great read, at least so far, and I recommend it to any of you science-maniacs out there. Phil evokes a young Carl Sagan; his science is easy to understand and his explanations are wild and hilarious.
Since I’ve been reading this book, it’s been on my mind. So when I was listening to an old podcast of The Preston and Steve Show (my local morning zoo), it blew my mind that they had Neil Degrasse Tyson, another famous atheist astronomer, on as a guest.
I knew that since they loved Neil, they would love Phil. So I shot them an email, and 24 hours later Phil was on calling in to their show!
I know I’m not supposed to believe in the supernatural…but it seems like I have some power. Mwahahahahahah!
Below is the great interview, spliced into three chunks by yours truly.
Enjoy. I know I did.
