The “StarTalk Playing with Science” podcast debuted February 1 on the StarTalk podcast network, home to astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson’s “StarTalk Radio” and “StarTalk All-Stars,” hosted by a revolving slate of scientists and science educators including Bill Nye. The show joins the Midroll roster for exclusive representation to advertisers.
Hosted by comedian and fan-favorite “StarTalk” co-host Chuck Nice and sportscaster and former professional soccer player Gary O’Reilly, “StarTalk Playing with Science” is where geeks and jocks collide. Each episode investigates one incredible moment in the history of sports, bringing together scientists, product designers, coaches, pundits and professional athletes to use science to shine a light on just what made it so great. According to the hosts, “Playing with fire gets you burned. But ‘Playing with Science’ gets you learned.”
Upcoming episodes include an exploration of the technology that helped Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt become the fastest human ever, and the physics behind NBA player Steph Curry’s 40-foot set-shot. Other future guests include such world-class athletes as Lance Armstrong, Hope Solo, and Odell Beckham Jr.
