Last week the holiday reruns were in full effect. Two of them featured science and technology-themed guests. The July 6 repeat of Jimmy Kimmel Live! featured Evangeline Lilly, who plays one of the researchers in Ant-Man and the Wasp. She was also in a new episode of The Talk that aired on July 5.
In other repeats from last week, you could have gotten your Big Bang Theory fix when Jim Parsons’ last appearance on The Tonight Show re-aired on July 5.
And in other new programs last week, you could have seen the lead of the new CBS All Access (online streaming service in the U.S.) historical drama series Strange Angel. The show’s lead, Jack Raynor, was on the show July 5th. He plays Jack Parsons, a figure in early American rocketry that also was involved with the occult in Los Angeles.
I’ll close this post by noting a recent appearance from a scientist on the radio. Fabien Cousteau, part of the Cousteau oceanography dynasty, appeared on the NPR program Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! on June 30. Cousteau, who studies sharks, was on the show’s Not My Job segment, where notable people are asked about topics unrelated to their expertise. In his case, Cousteau was asked about the jam band Phish.
