Science and Technology Guests on Late Night, Week of October 23

Well, Neil DeGrasse Tyson is still promoting his latest book and the new season of Star Talk.  (Katie Couric was the guest on Sunday the 22nd).  Monday night (the 23rd) he was on Last Call with Carson Daly.

This week is pretty strong for science-y demonstrations.  “Science Bob” Pflugfelder is back on Live With Kelly and Ryan Thursday morning (10/26).  Former MythBuster co-host Adam Savage is on the Wednesday edition (10/25) of the Late Show with his Brain Candy tour co-host Michael Stevens.

Former Daily Show correspondents have also made this week big for science.  Samantha Bee dedicated the entirety of the October 25th Full Frontal to climate change topics, including a segment on persuading those who are not persuaded by the evidence.  The Opposition host Jordan Klepper continues to engage science topics through the lens of the so-called alternative media (think InfoWars).  On Tuesday’s program Bill Nye was the guest, and the show has recently discussed Amazon’s business practices and the re-emergence of the National Space Council.
