Science and Technology Guests on Late Night, Week of September 22

This week marks the start of the new fall television series in the U.S., meaning the late night talk show rosters are particularly full of the actors with new programs (or new series of programs) coming out this week.

In times of crowding like these, we must once again turn to Comedy Central.  On The Daily Show this Thursday you can watch Steven Johnson describe his new PBS show on innovation, How We Got to Now.  On The Colbert Report Stephen will argue with Naomi Klein on Tuesday.  Her latest book is on climate change.  On Thursday Dr. Walter Mischel joins Stephen to discuss research on self-control and delayed gratification.

In content I didn’t know about in advance, there’s the September 8th edition of The Colbert Report.  In that episode Stephen skewered wearable fitness technology.
