As best as I can tell, 2018 has not been a strong year so far for science and technology related content. Yes, there are the specialty shows – StarTalk and Science Goes to the Movies (both in their fourth seasons) and Bill Nye Saves the World (season 2 dropped at the end of 2017). However, the more traditional outlets continue the lulls started with the departures of Craig Ferguson, Jon Stewart and David Letterman, and the move of Stephen Colbert from cable to broadcast.
That said, there is a guest this past week that sort of fits. Cass Sunstein is a legal scholar whose writing has included the integration of behavioral science into regulation. However, he was on The Opposition with Jordan Klepper on March 6th for his most recent book on authoritarianism.
