Watch: Neil deGrasse Tyson on Season 3 of his science geek talk show StarTalk

It started out as a hit podcast, then Neil deGrasse Tyson decided to bring StarTalk to the small screen — and now his science/pop culture/geek talk show is coming back for its second year.

So, our own Aaron Sagers caught up with Tyson to chat all things StarTalk, and the beloved astrophysicist dug into what fans can expect for the new season. The show is a lot of fun, and if you’ve ever jammed Tyson’s podcast, you know exactly what to expect. It’s the sweet spot of science/tech/sci-fi and pop culture.

In our chat with him here, Tyson touches on the new book they’re releasing to coincide with Season 3, and talks about the void he tries to fill with StarTalk (a show that was nominated for an Emmy, by the way).

StarTalk returns to National Geographic this fall.
