Science and Technology Guests on Late Night, Week of November 20

With Thanksgiving happening in the U.S. on November 23, many late night programs were in repeats for at least part of the week.  Among the repeats was the October 2017 appearance of StarTalk host Neil deGrasse Tyson on Last Call with Carson Daly.  You could have caught that if the Thanksgiving festivities kept you up late.  On the 24th you could have watched The Late Show repeat where Mr. Robot actor Grace Gummer talked with Stephen about the show and how she and her character interact with computer assistants.

The November 19th episode of StarTalk focused on the oceans.  Breaking from usual practice, the episode focused on not one, but two interviews conducted by host Tyson with noted ocean explorers.  One was Sylvia Earle, a marine biologist who, among many different jobs, served as chief scientist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association during the Clinton Administration.  The other was with Fabien Cousteau, one of the many members of the Cousteau family of oceanographers and ocean explorers.

As I sort of expected, the Thanksgiving week provided no new science and technology guests from late night.  Perhaps that will pick up after the holiday.
