Science and Technology Guests on Late Night, Week of October 21

This past week’s guests of note revolve around The Current War, a film just released in the United States that dramatizes the corporate and technical struggles around alternating and direct current in the United States in the late 19th century.  Benedict Cumberbatch plays Thomas Edison, Michael Shannon plays George Westinghouse, an engineer and founder of the electricity company that bears his name.  Each favored a different system for electricity.

Cumberbatch was on Jimmy Kimmel Live October 22, and both Cumberbatch and Shannon appeared on the October 21 edition of The View.
