Science and Technology Guests on Late Night, Week of July 11

I keep waiting for The Daily Show to announce its guests for Tuesday and Wednesday and they just won’t.  At least not until I post this week’s entry.

Many shows are in repeats, though in most cases, not the same ones that were in repeats last week.  A repeat of note would be Friday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, where we can see animal expert (large predators are his specialty) Dave Salmoni’s appearance from two weeks ago.  Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s April visit with Conan O’Brian will re-run on Thursday.

Michael Shermer will be on The Colbert Report this evening.  Shermer, a Scientific American columnist and leading skeptic, will likely be promoting his most recent work on the brain and how beliefs are formed.

If you’re really in the mood for some late-night science, take a gander at this recent ThreatDown segment of The Colbert Report segment that focused on some technology stories.  It’s all about the paranoia.
