The promotional onslaught for the new Star Wars film is crowding out the science and technology guests (please, name me one scientist or engineer character from the Star Wars films that had more than a line) this week. With the holidays close approaching, there’s a good chance for little new guests or content here until 2016.
Let’s work with what we have, and push through until the MythBusters Mega Marathon that starts on Christmas Eve. For content missed last week – there’s the December 9 segment on climate change from The Daily Show.
Here are this week’s meager offerings. In today’s (Monday’s) edition of The Talk, the show’s technology correspondent, Chi-Lan Lieu, appeared. On Wednesday, psychologist Daniel Gilbert will appear on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
And that’s it. New episodes of StarTalk (The December 13 episode with the founder of Mars One and one of the candidates for the mission is certainly worth watching) and Going Deep with David Rees continue.
