Science and Technology Guests on Late Night, Week of June 8

Tonight’s edition of StarTalk features Biz Stone, tech entrepreneur and co-founder of Twitter.  Discussing the interview with Neil deGrasse Tyson in front of an audience will be comedian Eugene Mirman, sociologist (and Dean of Social Science at Columbia) Alondra Nelson and science and technology journalist Clive Thompson.

If you missed last week’s Carson Daly interview with Pete Docter, director of the new Pixar movie Inside Out (which takes you inside people’s heads to examine their competing feelings), it will be on again late Friday.

This week the cast of Silicon Valley continues to promote their show on the late night programs.  Thomas Middleditch appears on The Late Late Show with James Corden tonight (Monday).  Kumail Nanjiani visits Conan on Wednesday.

Also making a promotional push this week are the stars of Jurassic World, which premieres Friday in the U.S.  Chris Pratt will be on with Jimmy Kimmel Tuesday night, and with Conan on Thursday.  On Wednesday he joins his co-star Bryce Dallas Howard on The Late Late Show.

In other guest listings, Christian Slater is part of the new series Mr. Robot premiering on the USA network later this month.  He plays the leader of a hacker group.  And on Friday The Talk will have a visit from Dr. Gadget.  He strikes me as more gee whiz about new technology than most morning or daytime show technology correspondents, but you can view that for yourselves.
