Terry McMillan: I Love My Characters
"Terry. Mcmillan has been a friend of mine for years and talk is just like you'd expect she's fun and vibrant and a reverend and just keeps it real and says whatever she wants. She brought all that energy to this conversation about writing where she gets really deep about her process where she surrenders to her characters and really lets them come alive on the page until her who they are and what they WANNA do. This really inspired me as a writer. Maybe think about really wanting to focus on character on a deeper level Terry writes these deep indepth character profiles before she even starting let those inform the characters. She talks all about that stuff here. Look whether or not you love. Terry's work a lot of people do and she's got a lot that she can teach you about writing. Check out her new novel. It's all downhill from here. It's in stores everywhere already. And of course this is the Patriots era of Toray. Show so if you want to hear the whole episode with knee and Terry could a patron dot com slash. Toray show and support are growing team. There you get the full Wednesday episodes and Friday patriotic exclusives already. There's episodes there with people like Malcolm. Glad well Zizi Packer Morris. Day Little Yadi Neil degrasse Tyson and more for now. It's Terry McMillan on Toray. Show how are you? I'm trying to keep hope alive for lack of a better cliche. How is corona affecting you? Are you stuck in the house? What's going on no? I'm not stuck in the house I live in a sort of a condo on the sixth floor and in Pasadena. That'S A HIGH-RISE MOM. But fortunately one side of where I live. I can see the parking lot to my really high end garage grocery store so I know when all of the stuff is being delivered and I'm friends with the guy in there so I get to get it. I get paper towels and toilet paper and all that stuff put aside but I'm just I look out the window what I see trees. I'm fortunate that I feel like I can exterior at least walk. I'm glad I'm not in New York. I feel sorry for people in New York will sorry for your in California and there's a lot going on in California. Are you scared. I'm scared not just I'm not scared for me But I did just you know. Do my hands again. I live and breathe for anti bacterial products gloves. I do my door handle if somebody wants to deliver something. Don't touch my door handle It's you know people are being very very nice to each other That's what I really really appreciate and am grateful for but am I scared hell. Yeah I'm scared we're scared of. I'm scared I don't I don't trust strangers. I know the most insidious thing we can't trust our friends. My neighbor came up as she wants to know if she can have some coffee and I said Wash your hands but she was already starting to turn the water on. And I've got antibacterial everything everything all over this house and I've gotten to the point. I wash my hands by accident thinking. It was my antibacterial stuff they were lens cleaning white sperm eyeglasses. I'm I'm concerned about the bug right. Because in New York we're looking at potentially fifty to sixty to seventy percent of the city getting it some concerned about the bug getting into you know me or one of the members of my family. My Kids my wife who you all know but yeah I am more. I am perhaps even more concerned with the mass economic impact of the iceberg. That is happening. That is coming that is going to affect a gigantic portion of us and thus have an impact on almost all of us. Do you think about that part of it all. Of course you know. I'm I'm on a list all the places you can donate to during this time. I mean I just keep thank God for pay pal. I'm just I worry about people. No I worry about people who can't feed their kids who can't pay their rent. Who aren't going to get too stupid check from Donald and senators In time I just I mean I can't even imagine what it must be like and I I can't even I can't fathom it and you know I'm just I'm really scared and I'm also very pissed off. I'm very pissed off because this really shouldn't even have been necessary if Donald Trump and done what he was supposed to do and not using his instincts which obviously is Has none not to mention brains and thing that we have called Empathy if he had something remotely close to that where he could think about something other than himself and his properties in Wall Street. Maybe we wouldn't be disposition. No we wouldn't be in this position. Will I mean yes? I think there was a constant thought. Of what do I need to do to get reelected? And if I downplay the situation and make everybody think it's no big deal nothing to see here while the House is burning down It'll go away and they believe that Shit. They still do that stuff they do. His base believed it. Wait till they get sick. I'm one waiting so you got a new book coming out trying to skip the subject. No but I mean like I'm talking to me worked up I mean no but I was WanNa talk to you about your book. I mean okay. It's kind of exciting. It's it's it's kind of an event for a lot of people knew Terry McMillan book. It's a big deal Holland say all that I mean. Don't you see that in the world that there is? There is a large class of people who are Terry McMillan fans and they get very excited when new Terry McMillan novel comes out. Well I'm grateful. I'll put it that way. I'm quite grateful. I mean there's a lot of excitement more than I imagined. I just got something today from publishers. Weekly the top six books to read. I'm like what I didn't even think they liked me. When you're writing and you're alone. Writing conceiving the book do you hear the masses? Do you feel a pressure because you know. A large class of people. Critics editors readers are going to read the book. Just because your name is on the cover of like I don't know what it would be like to the be writing knowing all these people are going to be watching. Imagine that might be sort of paralyzing. Now I'm not thinking about my audience when I'm writing a book you can Chinese know first of all they are Emma House. They aren't in. My Life Depict characters that I'm writing about. That's who I care about. That's who I mean. I surrender to these people and I'm I'm more worried about what my character is feeling and thinking how he or she is going to act as a result of something that I basically created For them to have to deal with and I don't know the answers to it I put myself in their shoes and I just I'm hypnotized. I'd I do what they would do. Not what I would want them to do but I do. I do character profile. So I sorta no my characters personalities but I don't know everything that they will do at any given moment but I'm not let me just say this but first of all if I'm on page twenty six or three hundred twenty six I am not thinking. Gee What are the folks going to think when a read this?
Fresh update on "neil degrasse tyson" discussed on The Atheist Experience
"You need to okay I. Don't give a shit if you believe the. Bible literally I care about evidence. Literally you might as well say you might as well come to me and say hey. This holy book says this, but I'm talking about what the sciences and the dating of the Earth by the overwhelming majority of scientists, experts and the methods which it. It baffles me to be sitting here. Here talking to somebody who thinks that they've found an exception that undermines since why aren't you off getting a Nobel Prize? For proving that the Earth is young when all of the experts in the in the field suggests that the earth is for closer to four point, five billion years old, at I, call him with two examples and their procedures or methods of dating the Earth are circular Geology. Not about metric decay and other things Yeah, it's not what it is. There's about twenty five different dating methods, and they overlap a different things in each one of them shows the accuracy of the other ones. You should just a quick. Google search on the reliability of radiometric dating would solve this for you. You have been fed a line of Boll Front of of. Young Earth. Who Don't understand the science and have managed to convince you that you're on strong footing, and you're not, and since neither Jim, nor I are scientists. I think it speaks volumes that you decided to call us with your armchair comet proof which has been addressed in debunked over, and you can go to the index to creationist claims and find it. You can search wikipedia and find it you can. Can do here. What are the responses to answers in Genesis Bullshit and find it? You can find Neil degrasse Tyson talking about this. You can find experts in a number of different fields, both with regard to comments. planets stars the You are so far away from science that before I will talk to you anymore. You'll need to submit a peer reviewed paper on your particular client. and honestly I just googled. That the hyper belt and the ten things about the belt from the NASA site basically says you're not right so. It's difficult. I get it but. Yeah, just so many different ways that you're. Iran it's not not even. So I'm going to try and get to these really quickly before the show's over. We've got mark in Rhode Island you're on with Jim and Matt, and you say that it's you can be justified in believing that a miracle is the explanation for an event, so let us have it short so I guess my I I. I want to start off by asking a question to you. You think one can ever be justified in attributing miracle as the explanation of events of events defined miracle, supernatural in origin or just unusual or what I would say, supernatural in origin so something. Else. Sure it's it's easy mark and tell somebody demonstrates that the supernatural exists, and in fact interact with the natural world. You are not justified and appealing to that as a potential explanation. Okay, so let me ask you this. So Science is the project of developing hypotheses and testing them to investigate how also I'm sorry. My voice sounds a little wave Ram, what on Earth to investigate how the world works, so, but it seems to me that if something beyond the natural world that could stand in causal relation to an event in the world exists. Obviously, you don't believe it does. We're just just completely hypothetically or. Something yeah, if that something existed then it would not be explicable through normal science, because if it was then, the event would just be natural, not supernatural. Things like people. Oh okay so I guess where my wrong, so so if if there's something supernatural, that's where you went wrong. Because you're inferring something about something that you have no evidence, you don't know what is supernatural. You've done what limits are. No stop let me finish my sentence to say XS supernatural. You can't tell me anything about it and you're. You're trying to by saying that. If x supernatural then there can't be a natural explanation for it, but there's no way to demonstrate that there cannot be a natural explanation. The only thing we can ever do is show that there's not currently a natural explanation, so you're hiding a big argument from ignorance fallacy in this model, my mission is really simple before we get to use the supernatural as a potential candidate explanation for an observation, we must first demonstrate that the supernatural exists and could be a potential explanation for it how you don't get to. Suggest a candidate explanation without demonstrating how and why it is a candidate and you can't do that. You can't even tell me that if something is supernatural. Then there's not a plausible natural explanation for it because it could be both near what so I agree that there could be both plausible, natural and supernatural explanations, but I feel like I may have. I made a mistake something so. I it. It sounds like win. A lot of people are describing what they would expect to see as evidence for a supernatural thing, and again for the sake of this, we can all be naturally. This is all just a hypothetical thought experiment I'm not attributing any supernatural to any particular event for the phone call. We can all be naturalists for for the thought experiment, but it seems like. If hypothetically it could again speak the conversation. We can say, can't we? Is We are over time, and they're still to callers waiting so if we can just get to it and not keep putting in the qualifiers. Okay Fair. It seems it seems like you're expecting the amount of evidence. You would expect for a investigating a natural claim for a supranational, whereas if it could which again we don't know if it could it were if it could, it seems like it would appear as a gap in our knowledge as the post something we were tasked so I have. A Post. That is an ad hoc unsupported assertion I. I'm not, expecting. Any more evidence or whatever else I just want somebody to demonstrate it, it's it's going to take whatever evidence that it takes to demonstrate. The fact that nobody's ever demonstrated anything supernatural that nobody's ever made a connection didn't think supernatural is I think fairly telling. However, that's where we're stuck. And until that changes you don't get to appeal. It's like it's like you're trying to claim that I have a apparent. Apparent what appears to be a six sided die, and so when we calculate the possibility of me rolling a six. It's the it's one in six, but it's almost like you're saying. Hang on a minute. What if there's a seventh side of that die and you can't see it. That's the type of thing that you're actually doing and the time for me to believe. There's a seven side on that I. I is when you demonstrate it and I don't get to appeal to the seventh side as an explanation until it's demonstrated as a candidate explanation, the supernatural is not a candidate explanation. Currently, it's not a problem that's not a problem with science. That's not a problem with me. That's probably the pyschology that is a problem with the supernatural. As soon as somebody demonstrates that the supernatural cannon should be considered A. A candidate explanation I will accept it as one and not one minute earlier. Okay, so let let me hose this visit. As example suppose there's supernatural being that caused a random formation of rain clouds in the sky when that otherwise would not have happened then so when we're. If scientists, we're going to investigate that event, we could investigate what happens. Obviously, we can map for Newton income. You can come up with a thousand examples that are going to keep us from identifying your hypothetical, but I want is one example that will actually identify your hypothetical why. As we can't prove supernatural fucking prove it new. No, but the point I'm trying to get I and I'm I'm likely phrasing at quite poorly. Is that the what you are considering? Proof I four for the nature of a supernatural event. Nature of the! Event is exactly answer.

"Known what is going on here and there. I was accepting everything else in this three hundred years in the future storytelling but I was in denial that we would ever have doors at New York coming towards the end would open of course back. Then there's a person standing behind the talk pulling up you know doors open automatically back then I would show up in the seventies and eighties And so but anyhow so I'm not one to predict the future but one of the things that I think we should strive towards is imagined a big device that removes carbon from the atmosphere will call him a carbon scrubbers is what they would be called it removes it and then buries it and then you can. There's a dial and Nabi. Can you know if if the if the ICE AGE IS ON? Its way you let a little more carbon dioxide out to eat it so we can have joe engineer hang on a scale that we are no longer a victim of what the atmosphere is doing. That would be Kinda cool. If we got to that level by the way you engineering might include our ability to tap. The energy from a volcano. We can tap a keg of beer. WanNa tap volcano. Stick a spigot in the side and the least some of the pressures use the heat to generate energy to drive the city that you that the lava would otherwise Destroy for example. So I imagine a future. I think that's an reachable future. We'd have been a level of What one of the cool thing about Cosmos in the legacy of it and the legacy of Carl Sagan is in addition to some of these like just really cool ideas that are presented by tapping volcano. It also has for lack of a better. You know word to describe it almost this like it's almost a spiritual experience away because you kind of see the magnitude of the universe and it really requires viewers to do some self reflection and a lot of our readers. Our audience are young and also religious. But they're they're big fans of your work. They're big fans of this show and they don't they don't see science as a threat to their faith they they think it just kind of expand their understanding from their perspective of of creation. And you get a chance to travel and speak and meet a lot of people particularly young people. Do you see that tension that maybe has existed at different points that between science and religion fading among young people. Is that your experience as you meet a lot of people So a lot in there so. Let me back up to your first trace. The word spiritual means different things to different people Not In the old days of course it was almost exclusively purely a religiously term today as you may know. There's the rise of spiritual demographic these are people who would say I'm spiritual but not religious right you heard people say that so These are people. I think who have retained a sense of very deep reverence for nature it. It kind of respect respect and reverence that immoderate use of the rich spiritual. You would say it spiritual and so. What's happened is the enlightened religious community recognized as the role and value of science and scientists shaped civilizations increased. Life expectancy is. It's it's generated wealth. It's a there's all the things that we care about in. Modern Society has been enabled and empowered by innovations in science and technology so among enlightened religious people. I've never seen any issues at all. The the the the conflict arises with the subset of the religious community. That happens to be really loud. So you think they're like the majority but they're not re talking about the fundamentalist subset of the religious community in the West. It would be fundamentalist Christians but in the Middle East fundamentalist Muslims fundamentalist choose their fundamentalist of all stripes. When you're fundamentalists there's no room in your worldview for a scientific discovery to conflict with what? Your Holy Book tells you is true and that causes conflict now. That conflict need not manifest in any crazy way in a free society a free society especially in the United States. We have free expression of religion. So if you want to be fundamentalist. Nobody's GonNa stop you. Nobody's GonNa stop you under less. You want to force your fundamentalist thinking into a science classroom. Then it's like what are you doing? No no if there's a site make religion class and talk about it in their religion class. 'cause that's what it is so not whether they're trends. I don't know if they're trans up there than the younger next generation is is there freely spiritual whether or not the assignment cells to one religion or another? It does seem like the the most vocal are the most fundamentalist but the real majority aren't reading holy books as science books. You know the the majority are reading them for a variety of spiritual reasons and I feel like shows like Cosmos and in your work really challenge people to question why they believe what they believe in really positive way because it seems so optimistic and not antagonistic. And I guess when you're creating a show I cosmos. How do you? What's the creative approach to you? Know Communicating these big complicated ideas ways that people from different world views and different values in different levels of education can engage with and enjoy. That's got to be sort of a creative challenge. Yes and that's a brilliant lead pose question and I'm glad you you even faulk that because that's a it's a fundamental part of how we approached the material right No time has anyone said of Carl Sagan More. I think of me. Maybe unless they didn't tell it to my face then at no time. Are We preachy to you? It's more and in fact. What tagline is. Come with me. We are going to go on a journey rather than stay in your seat at the chalkboard and I'm GonNa deliver a lecture right. No these are not lectures. These are not. We're not talking down to you. We are on a shared journey of exploration. For what the granddaughter of this? Universe is and what the methods tools of science revealed about it. And now that you you are there. Let's see how we can harness this new insight to become better citizens and better managers of what our the of what our civilization has wrought right. Yes we invented cars but then that made pollution and then we that pollution but then we have co two and so so. Yeah we don't WanNa you don't WanNa indict everything that we've ever done because there was not it wasn't done with malice it was done with with hope of a better future but sometimes they're unintended consequences and so you address those as they arise using the knowledge and wisdom to do the right thing by that by that challenge so it's a matter of taking a topic not being preach not making you feel bad for anything you thought before but celebrating this new understanding that we're bringing to you about how the world works and I think that has been successful and people from all walks of life and all ages all demographics and all religions have embraced science Cosmos in this way and in ways. You can't that other documentaries. Don't allow you to embrace them. That's why when you look at Cosmos. You're not thinking. I'm watching a documentary. That's not a thought you're having. I don't know that there's a word for cosmos is on landscape of informational programming but Yeah it's not. It's not off pudding and that's very purposeful unconscious. Now is Neil degrasse Tyson.

It's not out of friends who I've just never had a desire to keep them straight. I know I know Kim. And then there's a lot of there's others and. I have a hard time Australia. There's a lot of The okay number one this week. This Great Ben. Affleck talked about faith and doubt with Erwin McManus. All right so Ben. Affleck's new movie today. It's called the way back in which he plays an alcoholic basketball coach trying to get his life back. Jesse's been very excited about does he brings movie if Allott former high school basketball player. Kinda you know navigating some difficult situations going through a midlife crisis to find redemption guys with with a soundtrack by Boehner there. This is my total yesterday. This is my vengeance in Cape guys like corny inspirational sports movies. I'd love them okay. Ever since I first rocky. They're just they're just always fun to watch. And this one you know seems to have a little bit of an edge to it like I say it's kind of got the indy right. Like Bony Vera is on the soundtrack heavenly father's voice prominently in the in the trailer in the marketing. This is. This is a movie that was made for to appeal to a human being like me and I'm very I just having a chance to see it but I definitely will see it this weekend. So so that he ben. Affleck recently visited mosaic. Church to talk about movie with Pastor. Mcmanus friend of the POD Also discussed his own career his legacy in the real ups and downs in the role. That faith has played in his life affects said that church is a major part of his life. He still attends weekly with his ex wife. Jennifer Garner their kids however he acknowledged sometimes conflicted relationship with faith he struggled without it was a this is true. It was surprisingly vulnerable conversation. It was a lot more than sometimes you kinda feel like celebs are given churches the little head. Pat With like this but but this was about. Ben Really showed up to have a real conversation and and he did not sugar coat what he had to say. Take a listen to this. Discovery Talks about his own struggles with addiction. You don't need to ultimately be sure you need to into seek. Can you seek God? Can you look forgot in them? The guys had this conversation with have hard time believing. I don't know God there. It's got nothing. Just relax can you can you? Can you see God? Can you look like okay? Yeah I can do that and the more I did that. And the more allowed it to become something that didn't have to be a final determination or me saying I have the answer. I know it's right but just a search for For for a higher power for higher mission for her meaning for what was really important in life in the world and for God. That's that start to connect me more deeply to faith. Faith has served me well in recovery as an alcoholic and has You know there is that that sort of thing that the thing that I keep coming back to with faith is there is a part of US inside. Like a tuning fork. You know we sort of know when we're on the right path you know there's something that we can feel and that sort of resonates and the idea that that is whether you want to call it cuts or voice or what gives us leaves us to you know we have that. I love the idea behind what he said there. Which is you know when he was having you know he was talking about how he had met these different people in Aa who gave different perspectives about faith. In God's will and sovereignty and things like that and you know when but his big one of his major struggles was essentially the question of. Why does God allow bad things to happen? Why does he allow suffering? Why does he allow things like addiction? And that really you call so sort of you know major doubts but what he says. There is when guy challenged him like what? If I'd ask you really not to just believe but just seek look for truth. Try to find God and you know that's all that's all you're being asked to do is seek to look for it you know earnestly and it's like man that's such a beautiful idea that. I wish more Christians would encourage people struggling without to. Do you know because the the promise of part of the promise of the Gospel is that it unlocks itself to people who really earnestly look for the the key to understanding Yale ask and you shall receive knock in will be answered you know seek and you will find. I feel like that idea of encouraging people to not meet doubt with answers but meet doubt with questions is such a powerful concept. Because that's what we're told to do ask and you will receive not. Hey just believe some answer and you'll get it. It's like no no. You gotta see this stuff out you know like I thought that was a really profound idea. That's super super cool and I think it's it's not easy for anyone to talk about Talk about doubt talk about their issues with addiction to talk about the struggles. They've had like that's not something that I don't like talking about those things I don't I don't think spiritual leaders influence about those things. Certainly somebody been affleck's level of of prominence. You're kind of expected to keep things pretty safe to talk about what should know and not to rock the boat too hard and his the fact that he's been able to discuss his own is his issues and to give the sort of this. I think very profound especially for for people who are seeking who are in the midst of of of trying ask for for something for a sign that takes a lot of humility and that is not something that somebody and Ben Affleck's frame. We just bought a celebrity talk today on the Bod but somebody and Ben Affleck Zero Influence. Humility isn't really giving for those Peo- right so it sounds like he still has it. And and certainly some circumstances in his life have cultivated that and those haven't been easy for him but I'm it seems like it seems like he's in a place where I I don't know if he would say this but it seems like he's at least in a place where he's willing to accept Help and guidance and and And and be willing to look to something a higher than himself and that's a really important and beautiful place for somebody to come to e as hard as it is as difficult as it can be get there. So we're we're rooting for bed. Yeah he was even though he was a pretty good. He was a pretty good Batman. Pretty is that. That's that's a hot take. I thought he was fighting. Batman movie wasn't very good but he was all right. He sat very interesting career and just the trailer for this movie have have really inspired me to try to pursue by Lifelong Dream of coaching rag. Tag of Iraq. Ask Him Ball team but instead of inspiring them to overcome adversity. I just think of cool trick plays that are outside the rules of conventional basketball. I still have done a lot of research on my local local High School Life Virginia basketball rules and I have found nothing. Rulebook that prohibits me from designing a play in which one player is on another player shoulders creating creating super player. It's a loophole in the book for High School Basketball. I'm just going to set the kid right under the rim. Get another kid on his shoulder. We've tossed the ball up there too. Literal slammed up every time. And you know Ben Affleck and his movie he. He uses a tough life lessons to get this ragtag team back in in a winning mindset. I will use loopholes in creative problem solving setting those kids all next. I'm not opposed to super super player. Which is three players on each other so I just don't see how there's any defense for that unless us the implications of what I WANNA do because the only way to defend three players on each other's shoulders is by putting three players on the defense on each other's shoulder so what I'm doing. This is why they wanNA keep me out of basketball coaching. Because if I take over they'll have no choice but to essentially changed the game of basketball into one giant game of like pool chicken. You know what I'm talking about like swimming pool and Yatom each other learn shareholders. That's what I would turn the game too. And that's why they're hesitant. That's why every school does he want me as a volunteer. Okay message loud and clear. Message loud and clear. I think what you need is a school though. Like like the one depicted in the way back. Yeah just like they're out of ideas. They got nothing to lose in somebody there at the school. I don't know how familiar you are with people at your local. Your local institutions of educate made myself and my dangerous. It is about the evolution of the game of basketball. Very very clear to them tyler. They know me well. Well I think it's only.

Well that's the thing you guys are both pretty like mellow dudes tyler. Have you been yelled at by 'cause 'cause I was thinking about? This question of how many times have been yelled at by an adult that I've truly been shaken by. I thought three examples in my life. But Jerry thereby by Tyler t tell me tell me Real Quick Yeah. Well let's see off the Dome as a as a grownup I mean. There's obviously going to be. You know there's like there's cops and stuff that are going to yell at you then price road rage some guys on the streets or whatever get starion. They're doing with other issues. I think that that there may be. I feel like there. Were probably a few times when I was working in the service industry where people would start yelling. Talk about stuff and that can be very awkward. Because they're you the impetus is on you then like I can't yell back right. I'm here. I'm on o'clock. I'm representing the company. I can't lose my job so I just have to be. That's a very good point so I completely understand what you're saying. I very valid like even if they're just saying they're drunk and saying nonsense or whatever if that happened a couple of a couple of different times. I suppose I've been not yelled at but I've been you know. People have been very brewed and intoxicated. Wabc. Dj -ing like Yeah. But I don't think we elizabeth yelling.

Having a good time the other was the cook at a Mongolian Barbecue restaurant. One time I I had I had jam. I figure out a method to you guys. Are you guys go to Mongolian Barbecue? Ever Oh yeah I know what you're talking about Chandler. Are you a fan? I don't know if I've ever been so so it's a it's a cool setup. It's a bunch of raw food and you get a bowl and put it in the ball handed to the chef. And he's had this big like stick and he puts it on like a big stove and he cooks it. I figured out a way that verse the order of this is appropriate for. Everyone usually what they do is they. Put like noodles vegetables at the end of it are all your meats selections and those little sauces right you start at the back and you put the meets in first and you start and because the meats are kind of frozen and then start putting your sauces on there and it starts dissolving the meat and you just start packing it in and you can pack it like the size of a softball and then you just put meats and vegetables around the softball of meat. Because the reason they put the meat at the end is because most people fill with noodles and vegetables and when they get to the meat they just put some on topics. You should have seen when this thing. Roll that when this softball of just solid meat rolled out of the mall had free frozen because all the sauces I put on there. And he's in there and he's literally he throws her on the road and he starts whacking it with a stick and it won't even break. It's so huge. He was not pleased about that. Because I really held up the wind but this was this was not an all. You can eat this. Is You get as much as one ball. The other one was in. This is another I I would probably like. Nineteen or twenty. I think it was home from college and my brother thought it would be funny if Manson him me and some friends played a concert like a legit concert at like a club and but we didn't have a band and we didn't have any songs and my brother doesn't know how to play any instruments and so we went to this place and I was. I was playing guitar. My other buddies playing drums on the whole point of this was just to see how far week ago just winging it until we just have a meltdown on stage and smash some instruments right. That was the plan. It was just a weird idea. She's a weird idea. We care we care and we have a bass player so we had again. I don't know how we were in in. When you're that age you procure a lot of weird stuff. We did have a mannequin. And we brought a mannequin. Onstage and put a Bass Guitar on him so the Mannequin was sitting in a chair with a Bass Guitar on his lap. And we just started. We just started playing drums and guitar. My brother screaming. It lasted all of of under a minute before the owner of the place came screaming at us just enough time for US Nashwan Guitar and he almost literally through my brother out of there like Uncle Phil Roach. Dj jazzy. Like physically pushing about Schmidt couldn't have gone any better. It was a perfect night. It was a perfect night. But you know the Neil degrasse Tyson things. Federal many of those cases. Did you get the chance to deploy your trademark peacemaking skills to try to turn the key situations situations around in in the Manga? The I think the closest wanted to be in resolve was the Mongolian barbecue. I think I think what I think. He turned from frustration into respect for for how I had figured out how to jam that much meat in the ball but no I still don't go back to that Rv's and I'm terrified. He stepped foot near that. That venue again. So so the answer is no but all to say is I had. It was a very pleasant conversation I appreciate the grass is being a good sport and really suffering some some alien question but you gotta ask you know with that being said if any of our listeners have any fuzzy videos of extraterrestrials or their crafts we believe you we are on your side we would like to take them to the other grass. Tyson and to see what he has to say. I.
Neil DeGrasse Tyson: I Am More Than Science
"Neil degrasse Tyson. It's one of the most brilliant people alive but when we finally got together for an interview I WanNa talk to him about science. I WanNa talk about almost anything else. So we get into who he is a deep about. How race has impacted his life. The book concludes with Attribute Kim say to your father your sorry Eulogy Yes yes and You Know I lost my dad last year Owen did. Your Dad passed three years ago. Three years ago and You honor him beautifully. Can you tell us about him? And how he leads into you sort of the way you sort of take from him to become who you are. Yeah So my parents were married. Sixty sixty four years until his death to the end right now and We had a stable household. My mother was a housewife homemaker. Today I guess we call that Until were empty nest and she went back to school. That was by agreement by the way so the agreement was my father would continue working and then my mother would raise the children at home. There were three of you. Yes and the middle earth and raise the children and then when we were mostly empty nest enough she will go back to school and pick up her career which is exactly what happened. And she went back to College. She got a degree in Gerontology. Became a German got her masters Gerontology. The study of the needs that afflict old people. Okay Okay and how to resolve Geriatric Okay. Yes correct to gerontology geriatrics the same route And she ended up working for the FEDS. Allocating moneys to retirement communities Old Age centers nursing homes this sort of thing so my father was studied sociology and got his Masters at Teachers College Columbia and was always his entire life. Maximally concerned with the plight of the under served and in New York City in the nineteen sixties. It was then known as the ghetto. He got noticed by the city. He got pointed to be a commissioner of human resources by Mayor Lindsay in the nineteen sixties during the most turbulent years of the civil rights movement in the big cities he. He worked long hours. We'd see me come at eight something like that. But he was home on the weekends and we would Cook Breakfast and dinner on the weekend so he participated household when he could but during the week it was mostly my mother who was raising us. And what reference in my eulogy are things that he said and did that contain called deep levels of wisdom. You know what is wisdom? It's it's ideas. It's wisdom our thoughts that you have that are the distilled essence of your life experience after you've discarded or forgotten the details that's actually a necessary part of wisdom that allows wisdom to come out in the form of sentences. No one's GonNa hand you a five hundred page book and say here's my wisdom. That's that's that's not wisdom wisdom almost fi construct has to be so simple and so deep that you just pause and reflect on it without getting mired details so one of them was. It's not good enough to be right. You also have to be effective. You can say I'm right therefore it should be this way. You know we don't have time for you. Have you navigated a pass to make this happen? Have you bought for example? The you know the water hoses and the in the south during the during the protests. Okay why do we have perfect video and photographs of it? Beacause the organizers made sure the press was there knowing they'd be able to capture those conflicts. This was even done even go back as far as Gandhi This was portrayed in the film Gandhi where he's ready to have a protest. It is not useful if no one knows about it if you get your head whipped by the local police and there isn't a photograph of it. You are in the right but you're not effective so you invite the press. The sympathetic press so that for me was very important in getting things done in navigating the terrain on which you're trying to implement social justice and the press doesn't write about events that don't happen why would they well in the late nineteen sixties watts burned. Detroit burned Washington burned. You're newark burned. New York City did not burn. The most populous ghetto in the country was basically quiet in the wake of the Martin Luther King assassination. Yes there was some minor skirmishes compared to what was going on elsewhere. No does anyone write a story no riots in New York The story is written. My father was active in the human resources administer. He's the commissioner a city commissioner. Making sure that there were opportunities available to people who needed opportunities for jobs to feed their family. What is a riot if it's not the very last act of desperation of the mouthpiece of the voiceless it is the it it not only voiceless people who are also hopeless Once you've run out of hope you have no options. You can have no voice but still hope you're not gonNA rock it. You gotta be voiceless and hopeless in it. Yeah so people in New York. The inner city of New York didn't was not without hope without some confidence that maybe there are opportunities just on the other side of the hill. I'm just saying these are things that my father was engaged in that I will not ever forget. I'm their son the astrophysicist but I stayed grounded in what matters for any kind of progressive change in this world and for me progressive. Change IS THE INEVITABLE. Consequence of rational thought applied to challenges. So no I'm not hitting people over the head saying you should be more progressive. Because then we've learned that some people dig their heels and more strongly to impose you especially in modern times where conflict has fomented on social media. But you just get people to think a little differently about things in the face of evidence. I've found that can have potency of its own and as an educator and as a scientist this is what I've done an in the book. Essentially every reply to people have written to me is an attempt to layer onto them some degree of measured rational thinking still some emotion there. You can't just be cold about it. But you want to empower people to be able to sink in new ways so that they can say. I now know how to analyze this information in ways I did not previously. Thank you for this bit of scientific insight. That allows me to do that. And that's what this book is about

Shaw Bell as your host goes to create the best advice from the world's smartest and most interesting people by asking them just five questions. My guest today is astrophysicist. I author and head of the Hayden. Planetarium Neil degrasse Tyson born in New York City to a gerontologist father and sociologist mother. He grew up in the Bronx in high school. He was the captain of the wrestling team. In the editor in Chief of the Physical Science Journal Neil first became interested in astronomy falling visit to the Hayden planetarium where he enrolled in various courses purses there he started gaining notoriety as a fifteen year old lecturing in his community he went on to earn his B A in physics from Harvard and his PhD in Astrophysics from Columbia. In in two thousand and one President George Bush appointed him to serve on a commission studying the future of the US aerospace industry and in two thousand four he was reappointed to focus on the implementation nation of the US space exploration policy in two thousand six. He was appointed to serve on the NASA Advisory Council and was awarded the NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal. Currently Louis Neil as the head of the Hayden Planetarium. A research associate of the Department of astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History and the host of the star. Talk PODCAST I. He has written sixteen books including his latest letters from an astrophysicist. That we discussed in this podcast you've written countless letters over the past. Thirty years in documented rented them in this book writing letters lost art form in the age of email texting and social media. How has reviewing and publishing these letters impacted how you live your life? I am reminded by these letters that thoughtful communication using the written word. It is something that perhaps should be rejuvenated in our culture. And we've come far from it would now communicating with emojis. I just think about that from a handwritten letter and in the old days you would have penmanship. That would express some of the mood of as a letter as well. Another dimension of communication who has provided by the writer. Not only that you might illuminate the first letter of the page. As the monks did in manuscripts that were written. So I'd like to see more thoughtful. COMMUNICATION COME FORWARD I. I wonder whether the anger that exists in social media is because we forgot how to communicate the nuances of what we you mean and what we think. They end up. Being Blunt statements that people use as reason to argue rather than as supporting words to pursue a conversation you have blended science and pop culture in an entertaining way that has gotten people who don't like our understand science interested it. How did you learn to be such an effective communicator? All I did was pay attention to people's reactions one on one when I would describe bribe science or any part of the universe to them. Do there eyebrows go up there. Did they look attentive. Did they look away. There's body language that you can do on that informs that it's feedback on whether you are communicating successfully. If You keep mental or written inventory on what works and what does not you can use that to shape future encounters. You might have with the public. And that's what I've been doing my entire life so I don't presume what I have to say is what someone will want to listen to. Instead I draw from my repository of knowledge of the universe and say to myself how can I shape ape this information and deliver it in a way that I already know can trigger enthusiastic reaction to that information. And that's what I do and I do that all all the time and when I did that with the press came back for more with documentarian they came back for more. When I did it on twitter? They came back for more. So I'm a servant of this Appetite and I'm delighted to operate in that capacity but I'm I don't forget that I'm a servant of that appetite not someone who's creating it you say that yeah. People tend to look outside of themselves especially people who are religious to find meaning in their lives. Why do you suggest people instead look inside themselves and how how has that benefit year? People look outside of themselves for meaning I in principle. There's nothing wrong with that. But if you spending your life looking for meaning and not finding it maybe it's time to look inside. That's really how I should have ever presented that point of view. If you're looking for me not finding it look inside yourself and see if you can create create the meaning. You've been searching for your entire life. And that usually means using your mind body soul your energy resources to improve either in your own life or the lives of others. It's not hard to derive meaning in those contexts meaning and purpose and value in civilization for having done so it could be small acts of kindness. You know the proverbial helping the lady old lady across the street. Is it volunteering. Charity where people are benefiting from your invested energies that can create and sustain meaning in one's life. And that's what I do in my own way. This year I worked on a global study focus on artificial intelligence with Oracle we found that people are now embracing ai and overall a positive relationship with it despite privacy and security concerns how can a improve our lives instead instead of causes harm. It's already improved our lives. Think of the things that computers are now doing that. You're not even questioning where you know. Thirty years ago. It would have been seen as sorcery. You have a thing that fits in your shirt pocket that tells you how to get to grandma's house and when and where the traffic is getting heavy and it will suggest roots for you to avoid the traffic vic and at no time is an actual human being involved in that process. That's a are you have cars. That are actively stabilizing the the axles. Because it knows what outcome you want and don't want that's why I was in the airport lounge. There's a big machine there you can get DECAF you can get expresso. You can get nine kinds of coffee plus hot chocolate pushing a button on the same machine that say I know there's another kind of a general I where it's not just a tasked machine. It is something that learns on its own and can make decisions on its own and can do different things. I don't see US heading heading that way anytime soon. Because that's not why we need something smart. We're GONNA have smart car drivers around. They will not get into accidents. That will never be drunk. They will not get distracted that will have all protections in that. We don't have for ourselves. That's a I but it's localized to a car. It can navigate from one side of the city to the other without a human intervening whatsoever. So Hey I is already upon us and I don't see some future future arrival of. Ai Is being fundamentally different. From what we've already experienced in terms of the practical workplace and what is your best piece of career advice. Do the hardest things at all times times. You will ascend a pyramid with powers of solutions that others don't have and then force people to beat a path to your door because you took harder classes then everyone else. Did you take easy classes. And everyone is equally as talented as you. And there's no way to distinguish you from anyone else in the workplace. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom Neil to follow all his journey can read his book. Letters from an astrophysicist listened to star Talk Radio and find him on twitter instagram and facebook where he shares his travels life reflections pictures she from space and time and celebrity conversations.

"neil degrasse tyson" Discussed on Life is Short with Justin Long
"I'm not great at auditions But I found myself getting even more nervous than I usually do I I was getting almost like scared I realized that he the orbit of another planet that's just wrong that's just Nari tablet when I don't know what do you do you tell you don't do that for back and here's the thing I'm having this conversation with him he writes back and says for so much smart you you seem really closed minded I thought you'd be more open minded than this oh you read obviously your own side of the letter yes I guess people can now hear you've a great voice knows you've sites fifteen shoes massive speaking of bigfoot they just say one point by my dad was a teacher I grew up my older brother's a teacher and so I grew up around what the hell happened to you right you elect sheep where did looked at and thought I want a I want to be like this person that's question and I gotta go back one step before that and say that I have an unorthodox outlook on role models who I think a role model is is guided concept because it forces you to find a whole person that has a similar background as you with a similar ambition that you had eh trying to match too much if I needed a role model who is a black person who came before me in the Bronx who became an astrophysicist take your yeah yeah that's just not realistic instead assembled my role models alicarte so what I did was I say there's somebody who has an amazing agility with words and I I want to one day be able to communicate with that facility not only with words but you just wanted to keep hearing them talk because they were the voice was soothing and they've said interesting things things and it was laced with some humor let me say lace that sounds like drugs yeah it was infused with humorous so that every few sentences you smiled and that kept you interested what a rare into rare I want some of that then I met a scientist who had such a command of content and there I am fifteen the guys fifty and I'm saying I will never know that much about the universe not thinking how many more years I had to actually study the stuff and I said but if I ever become interests I want the command of the content the way he has and I I'd never left my head and then my parents were very upset aggressive and almost every outlook mother was a lawyer and no no no no she was a gerontologist with she was a homemaker while we were in school we were pseudo almost empty nest and then she went back to school. I'll finish their degrees got a master's in Gerontology then worked for the feds allocating the health department of Health and human services allocating moneys for nurse in homes and old age care centers that sort of thing my father was active in the civil rights movement yes so everybody's caring about people and this is their Sunday astrophysicists so I stayed grounded but in a morally correct way I mean not grounded I can't reach for the stars Yes we for the for the stars but don't forget earth so this is the environment so how did they how did they communicate that they didn't just by being what they were either example Oh yeah religion in your house so I was raised Catholic Catholics have a very wide ranger who observes what's going yes and touch on this subdued several times factors many letters in their religion God spirituality this is where people's angst and has been centered yet you do sit over you use the term overflowing with existential angst which I love ah yeah trying to understand their place in the world as and many of them were raised in a religious tradition and then they're confronted with science and and then they worried lose their religion so all of this in there the different letters scattered in different ways more Orthodox than others harass my upbringing was my my dad was in the sorry for seven years we were very he has of respect for the Catholic tradition but it's not as dogmatic exactly in in my family it was that way I think the question one needs to ask if you're religious is not did you go to synagogue every Saturday or pray five times a day or go to church on Sundays I think a different question would be in your everyday life what role did religion play decision as you make your thoughts you had for me it was essentially zero from third grade onward there were no thoughts about God or Jesus or anything and did that coincide with the on that you really discovered you begin to understand sign yeah I began to understand the nature of the universe and I would ask questions is God see me if I'm not near a window I'm in third grade when I'm asking these questions but how could he create the whole universe and then pay attention I started just ask questions and it became less and less tenable to me yeah since it was not folded into family decisions at no time to mother father say what would Jesus do I we were raised secularly my brother and my sister so the Middle the problem middle trump going the one thing we have in common they tell you just quick I met someone afresh and they said based on Hi my personality as they read it in the first five minutes of knowing me they said Oh you must be an eldest child I said no you must be the youngest trial no but then I guess you're the only child and I said no and they said well what are you and I I'm the Middle Child is fat explain so it's like I'm sorry do there's no there's nothing less mutation that's such a good example of a lot of those letters people are looking to answer something they've already come looking at verify yeah exactly and so that's that's harder to reply to Beatles you have already made up their minds you make the distinction you have to make it in several different forms these letters the difference between believing scientists not something you believe in science is something that is it requires a set of empirical truth that's right that's right and that's why collectively religions are called faiths yeah yeah faith is something you believe in the absence of evidence evidence you call signs yeah it's Kinda that simple and some people like to reduce science to faith-based thing in order to make their argument for the religion that happens a few times all right I'll restate that because you said that very quickly and is very one thing that you just said there are many people who want to say science is just as much of a religion as religious right and they'll say because you guys have paradigm you guys are belief systems and you all band together and you and it's like no that's not how it is just visit a scientific conference in any disciplined where everyone is on the frontier we are arguing we are fighting there's no name calling and generally we don't break into fistfights I'd love to see not to scientists I can protect your fights but I'm just saying it is our job to find the holes and someone's talk do not engage in that exercise you are being irresponsible as a colleague right it's it's so it's for more to say it's subject to change is an understatement but the frontier changes every day you achieve correspondence between your research and my research and someone in another country and someone who used a different voltage for their mant you look at the variations in how the experiments are conducted experiments of different design if they all leaned the same direction in the same way approximately the same results you have a new objective truth in the world he put it in the textbook can you move onto the next thing and I thought that was interesting in in in the context of eleven conspiracies you touch on this that you were there there's right I mean you're you're hitting every hotpoint there in the book I take on a consent yeah so that was fair he really wanted to know totally yeah and oftentimes I mean some are very moving too summer summer about the ones about life and death people who are expiring using death and and you say something chapter yelled life and death yeah right yeah people who are themselves dying or in a bereavement over loved one who has died and will they see them in heaven you know there's there these questions and I keeping awake he's right and just you might think listening to this conversation that here these people bearing their souls and I just stomp on it with my oh God my feet but here's my one bit of evidence that that's not what opens yeah is one of the letters Jewish woman raising a ten year old son who is on the autism spectrum he comes home from Hebrews will one day and says he doesn't believe in God anymore and that he doesn't believe in the Bible stories and she's an orthodox Jewish and so she says how did you get these ideas keep reading me up there what do what I want to talk with dismissed it right so at the end she says you know affect my son and I don't want to force him to believe something that might not be true that she said could God and science coexist and I just want to know I know he respects you and I thank you you for that she's very it's a very very respectful letter and at the end she says I'm just trying to be a good parent it took me a year to reply because there is how am I gonNA come into the no I mean put it down she's Orthodox Jewish I've done a lot of homework on religions last me and rather than just discounted I'm saying let me let me know enough about their religion to at least have some sensitivity to to where they're coming from you also say that you've exposed your children too many religions yes I remember anthropological for this people believe this they believe that and here's why I was rare savior and this is the and I finally look back and I wrote back on Passover her I figured that strategic teacher when she's checking your email I'm not gonNa tell you what I wrote in the letter it's in the book but I will say that that she did reply thanked me for the letter and invited me to her son's Bar Mitzvah and no can you tell me when they're not I didn't feel we'll get plus I had a busy schedule but I'm giving a public talk in Atlanta where she lives out envited them to meet them for the first that's nice I I was also struck by that listening to this book it's weird to say listening to the spoke reading this book but I didn't technically ready to this is what I really admire one of the things I'd admire you so much for this in your ability to do that the thought that you put into that because that when it comes to teaching I mean that is that is it's as important as the stuff you know I would imagine largest from my father because he talked a sociology in Bronx community college before he went to work for the Mayor Mayor for Mayor Lindsay that's correct in the nineteen sixties so you've way born are you in Fairfield Connecticut my dad talk here in the region yeah yeah so what did he teach he touched philosophy a tough yeah oh my gosh philosophy I know your so Where did he teach Fairfield University of Small Jesuit School in Connecticut okay cool Jesuit so they prosecuted Galileo yes hold me back shop they never meet again his field was more medieval philosophy so it was kind of times I just want to know why it's a wrong I must want to know where and the evolution of that thought you touch on that if I think the philosophy section is how you talk about Bertrand Russell and how philosophy has had to evolve based on what we're discovering right it's interesting in all fairness who professional philosophers that Chapter I really it's called philosophy but I really should've called it questions that really didn't fit any other chapter someone has one asks the difference between how and why yes and I said that.
"neil degrasse tyson" Discussed on The Ben Shapiro Show
"No Sundays special I'm excited to be joined today by Neil degrasse Tyson his brand new book is letters from an astrophysicist who of course also hosts star radio which is a podcast and his famous show Cosmos National Geographic.

"A day seven days a week for about ninety percent of the year. We see this phenomenon show up at a global level. So for example, there's been a natural experiment over the last forty years even more than that in terms of the deployment of nuclear and the deployment of solar. You can see that at. A little bit higher costs. We got about half as much trysofi from solar and wind than we did from nuclear. Well, what does all this mean for going forward? I think one of the most significant findings today is this one had Germany spent five hundred eighty billion dollars on nuclear instead of renewables. It would already be getting one hundred percent of its of its electricity from clean energy sources and all of its transportation energy. Now, I think you might be wondering as quite reasonable to ask is nuclear power safe. And what do you do with the waste? Well, those are very reasonable questions. Turns out that there's been scientific studies on this going over forty years. This is just the most recent study that was done by the prestigious British medical journal Lancet finds that nuclear power is the safest it's easy to understand why according to the World Health Organization about seven million people die annually from air pollution and nuclear plants. Don't emit that as a result the climate scientist James Hansen looked at it. He calc. Related that nuclear power has already saved. Almost two million lives to date turns out that even wind energy is more deadly than nuclear. This is a photograph taken of two maintenance workers in the Netherlands shortly before one of them fell to his death to avoid the fire and the other one was engulfed in flames. Now, what about environmental impact? Well, I think it really easy way to think about it is that uranium fuel, which is what we use to power nuclear plants just really energy dense about as much about the same amount of uranium as rubik's cube can power all of the energy that you need in your entire life. All right. So, but here's now here's alternative we have to offer. They'll turn viewpoint in nineteen seventy three my mom and Martin sheen and happy and sunshine and access Zora. Back took a hit off Doobie and pronounce no nukes. So there's your counterargument and telling that's why data not have the understand a presented both sides of the coin. Very even-handedly. Fifty fifty came into this neutral, but I've been convinced sore back in the Doobie Zoback, the regionals zigzag man says no nukes, and this guy was he attended multiple junior colleges before. Like a chump via before the hydroponics bus from nineteen seventy nine. So he knows what he's talking about. Okay. So here we are. Yes. I get this guy. Neil degrasse Tyson and let them figure it out. So is there going to be or maybe there is now a PR group that is trying to turn around what people think of nuclear? They did it for the Cotto. Oh my God. I know everyone's eaten avacado I got I got a hand on it reminded me Kristie got an offer to more. Right. But I don't know. Listen punch, dumb people. Explain they don't feel good about something that really that's enough for policy kinda neat there. I agree. It's neither here nor there. I'm not interested that you don't feel good about something. You don't like the sound of that. Like, okay now sh then shut up or go in the room and shut the door drown yourself in the tub. Like do something where we don't.

"Right. Who cast? I'm Ed Rappaport this week. We've got the inimitable Neil degrasse Tyson world, famous astrophysicist Neil has a lot to say in a lot of different ways kind of all over the place on this podcast and a good way. He's kind of just like pinball and through the cosmos with his thoughts, and he had so much say that hey, I forgot to even get into the fact that he loves wine and be I forgot to mention his new book accessory to war. The unspoken alliance between astrophysics and the military, and yeah, I know that doesn't have a lot to do with food. But don't worry Neil food loves to cook. Then makes apparently the best French toast ever. All right. Let's do this. Here's Neil degrasse Tyson. Naomi will be honest with you. I was always honest just in this moment this moment, especially I was worried. I was like oh Neal. He's an astrophysicist. I don't even really know what that means. Maybe we're not gonna have enough to talk about. And then it literally took us about forty five minutes just to get from my office to the studio. Just right now, you're in the test kitchen, touch it and talking to Brad about Khumbu you got a CD healthiest chocolate. Chip cookie. You just stop by. I've no idea what this thing is next door some beauty thing where their heads split. So champagne open up the beauty salon. You grab it grab the split. A champagne chatting all the way. Have you always been so talkative and engaged? Oh, I like talking to people who know more about something than I do. Yes. And I'm old questions in all ears. So in the test kitchen, what are you doing? What are you doing that butter doing with that concoction? Why is it that caller what what's happening next, and we go to the photos? Studio, then she's arranging Brussels sprouts leaf by leaf on the plate with tweezers. And so how you doing how you taking that photo? And what's the light angle? And so I just like learning, and it's not often I'm in a place where everybody knows more about something else than I do. I'm with my colleagues, or I'm in the public where they want me to share the universe with them. So I'm just a I'm just a kid in a candy shop in place such as Conde nast, and who doesn't like food. All exactly right wanted to bone apetit. Right. Everyone the likes food whether or not you cook it that's another matter. But isn't it one thing? I always tell us sort of younger people wanna get into journalism. I I honestly believe this the most important ingredient if you will and being a successful journalist is curiosity. You have to want to ask questions and learn. Yeah. And otherwise, you you you're ossified in your own worldview. And then that reveals itself in your articles in anything. You're right. You finish your shaping. What you investigate to fit? How you? The world is or should be. And that's not a good journalist. A good journalist is a is a wide open conduit for the reader to explore with you all the mysteries of the world. So for instance, when we were in the test kitchen just now we law we we were just talking about Barry white before we went on air and Barry white sounding so much more bury than I am. I feeling very. Like, I need to talk like this. Knows Barry white. Question. Love unlimited. The Cato the highest compliment I ever got. It was my Twitter stream and someone wrote. I'm the straightest guy there ever was. But if Neil Tyson showed up at my doorstep with a Barry white CD in a bottle of champagne, I'm letting them in. That's the highest compliment. I ever got. Oh, but oh, so so we're in the test kitchen and anti-bear Ghani was a testing Asia YouTube guy, we have a couple of YouTube guys with Brad the guy who makes it Khumbu be Brad. So we talked about Brad. But Andy was doing the pork in milk in the first question, you ask it was like, well, why milk? What does that? What does that bring said it does it tend to rise it? What is do you after their? Yeah. And it's interesting because that's a Tuscan dish. And. When you nobody doesn't love Tuscany now. Right. Sunsets everything. And this is why they make movies and books about it. It's it's the most cliche place to go..

"Joshua Johnson. Everyone needs a smart best friend, someone who can explain things simply and patiently someone who knows that. No question is dumb or too crazy lucky for us. We have Neil degrasse Tyson. He's an astrophysicist in the host of star talk where he talks about all things scientific, and he's ready to answer your questions today. Tyson is the director of the Hayden planetarium at the rose center for earth and space in New York. He's also the co author of the new book accessory to war, the unspoken alliance between astrophysics and the military co-authored with office Lang, a research associate at Hayden, and he joins us now from New York, Neil degrasse Tyson, welcome to one a. thanks for having me and even pronounce my coffers name correctly. She's office Lang. Fantastic. Very good credit to our producer Amanda Williams for getting the right. We like getting the facts on this program and we'd like to get you some of the facts of really facts. Yes. You care about facts. It seems. Be an uncoated market. We figure we'll just stick with it and we go for, you know, and if you'd like to get some of the facts about space and science or astrophysics and its relationship to the military, now's a good time. Let me start with the book this alliance between astrophysics and the military. Give us a sense of what that is in a nutshell and why it is as the title of your book suggests so unspoken. Yeah, so so we already are familiar with the role that other sciences have played in warfare, especially engineering. You know, somebody had to invent the catapult when that first showed up on the battlefield, what asymmetric weapon, that would have been a symmetric in the military sense where your opponent has something that you don't have and you're in deep trouble because of that difference. And so they call that an asymmetric advantage. So engineers definitely. And if you look at the notebook of of Leonardo da Vinci where, yeah, he did art, but he also was masterminded sort. Military machines that could lay waste to your army. So and we know him as one of the greatest combinations of scientists, engineer and an artist. But moving forward, you think of the physicist as the person who builds the bomb right that was well known in the during the Cold War, especially we also know the chemist that you know would make chemicals like napalm and things like that. Going back to the first World War where they would, you know, fled the field with mustard gas. The biologists might weaponize anthrax. For example, the astrophysicist you make no such association because we just humbly sit at mountaintops in wait for photons to arrive from across the galaxy, and then we carefully take the detector into the coffee lounges and debate what we saw. So that connection is not obvious. And so when I say the unspoken alliance between Astro physics and the military, it just never shows up. But in fact astrophysicist, and in the earlier days, astronomers have been fundamental. To the growth of empires and the hegemony of nations in particular the the need to navigate with precision around the world, hush my my professional ancestors, no new the night sky and to to know the night sky and on any level is to give you better advantage for navigating earth surface because the sky looks different depending on where you are on earth and things rise at different times and set in different places. And so if you knew this, you can know where you're headed, where you're coming from, where where the trade winds are, we're the hostiles are where the friendlies are, and all of this can be established. And there's no end of examples where this kind of information was exploited for the gain of the nation who had control over it. Neil President Trump announced the creation of a space force this summer, sixth branch of the military to focus on the militarization of space. Although I guess it will be a v. France, since the coast guard is technically part of d. h. s. which is also the topic of your book. Give us a sense of topic within there is a topic of the book. Give us a sense of what this space force would need to do have accomplish, avoid to be in the best interest of pm Merican people and of humanity..

"Today, Bob Woodward's explosive book on the Trump White House is officially out in stores. It's a depiction of the White House in chaos aides removing documents from Trump's desk that parts well known. But some of the deeper themes or the role of the military and its access to the nuclear codes. These people with so much responsibility working to thwart Trump. What Woodward details again. And again, and again, his military leaders, secretary Mattis and others just being alarmed by this president, some of them acting as Mika said, like guardrails of democracy, trying to save the world, maybe Jim Madison balls that category. I can tell you here at the White House and under the leadership of general, Kelly, we're a team. We're ensuring that the president gets the information that he needs to make incredibly important decisions. My next guest has a unique perspective on this relationship between the military and the White House astrophysicist and director of the Hagan planetarium in New York, Neil degrasse Tyson. You could also recognize him from cameos on shows like the big bang theory or maybe you've seen his SNL impression by Canaan, Thomson or Tyson, along with another science guy, Bill Nye posing with a presidential selfie right there. He's the author of fourteen books including the new book excessively to war, which argues that throughout our history, military advances often go hand in hand with wider scientific progress. For example, at the height of the revolutionary war was George Washington saying was absolutely necessary to get the latest tech from Europe, a telescope and and one of the most famous painting showing Washington crossing the Delaware. He is holding that telescope right there in his hand, I am honored to be joined by Neil degrasse Tyson. Thanks for being here. Thank you. Thanks for having me. We're going to get to this book, but I'm curious, given your studies of the military, what you think about the leaks, the generals are trying to stop the president's worst instincts. What I can tell you is if you walk the halls of the Pentagon, there are quotes everywhere drawn from documents of our freedom and. Even though the president is the commander in chief of the armed forces, they will repeat throughout the Pentagon. These quotes where they take an oath in the armed services of the United States. That oath is not to the president's the oath is to protect the constitution, and it's a fascinating fact that the president is the commander in chief and they give the orders. But at the end of the day, if an order does not match what you judge to be fulfilling the constitution of the United States that the edicts of the constitution, the United States, you're expected to disobey that order the the idea that you are protecting the constitution and the constitution defines the United States, not any one president or another. Now your book here excess strata war probe, some interesting territory because we hear a lot about business as an innovator and a job creator and a disruptor. But you say it is government and explicitly government to the military. Has advanced technology. That's good for all of us. Well, that's that's well known. So for example, what businesses can do, they can invest in some innovative technology, but there's the expectation that that's going to be. There's going to be return on that investment during the quarter or in the annual report, right? Most five years, hence governments, however, have much longer baselines of investment and expectations on the return on that investment. Let me read a book about the US example. President Eisenhower announcing the approval of plans for launching these small unmanned earth circling satellites. And it says Eisenhower, recognize no modern country could be militarily preeminent without also being scientifically eminent. Does that have a policy implication for us right now completely because there was the day. I mean, he saw the transition between we're mighty military because we have this many troops on the border, and we are mighty military because we have the signs technique. Technology to render most of that even unnecessary because you have intelligence that tells you where you need to put troops and why you need to put them where they are and how to tame the new high ground. The new high ground in the late fifties and early sixties was space space is something that is, you know, the current administration has talked about, but it seems like we might be experiencing a bit of a decline in scientific literacy in the White House. I wanna play for you for your reaction a couple of presidents over the years. Take a look..

That's cars following. Yes, but I'm going to be pumping the stuff with some physics, and that's what I did. I don't know why they just didn't have you on cosmos, but put a bunch of light branding stickers over you in just let you do cosmos Pennzoil. You know. Overall with a whole lot of branding that that would be the collision of NASCAR in astrophysics in cool. All right. So if we can bring up our first tweet, we'll see what it says and fabulous rubber tires on asphalt grant a maximum speed of about one hundred and sixty five miles per hour. In the twenty four degree banked turns at Charlotte Motor Speedway, so that's kind of cool. Okay. The for me, the interesting part in there is the twenty four degree banking. Now, is there a difference or is that standard for NASCAR train? Well, I can't speak as an expert of NASCAR, but what I tell you is in order to do that calculation, you have to know the Zach, the angle of the Bank, and it turns out within some tracks. The banks are not the same Bank angle is not the same on different turns, and it's not the same from track to track. So that's all I can say. I don't know what rules or What? what. What, what, what, what regulations are there? But all I can say is at Charlotte Motor Speedway, the Anglo, the track is twenty four degrees has so as a as a REIs drive. Yeah, how am I going to use that banking to my advantage over my opponent at say, one hundred and six. Yes..

"This is on point i'm jane clayson we're talking this hour with neil degrasse tyson about space nasa and missions to mars his new book is astro physics for people in a hurry you can join the conversation are we entering a new space age is that a good thing are you ready to see humans on mars would you go follow us on twitter and find us on facebook at on point radio here is neil degrasse tyson's sister lynn explaining her brother's appeal on cbs sunday morning what he's able to do is to demystify science and that is the ultimate equalizer i think any person when they realize that they can learn something they don't see even what that mode of communication is they just know that they've been inspired and that they've learned something and so i think that cuts through what the presenter looks like it cut through race it cuts through age cut through gender does here's a say edge hill student who participated in new york city's march for science just last month telling n y one why he marched client is really important in all lives of america because it helps us learn more about the world and also helps us care authors a little neil degrasse tyson there what a kid you know you hear kids a lot in our society neil falling behind in math and science as compared to the rest of the world i'm curious what your answer to that very difficult problem is i think the first i was not as mature as that kid was pretty young so yeah the the the part of the consequence of when you lag behind the world i mean there are many layers you can cut it this but the first one is if you lag behind the world okay so what you lag behind the world except that then the world leads the future they innovate and they invent innovations in science and technology will be the engines of the twenty first century growth economies there's no question about this if you lag the world they innovate and then we have to trail behind that that's not a posture that i grew up in as an american and it's i bet it's not the posture the congress wants to take as we go deeper into the century so that sooner people realize this the more we can try to take corrective action in the school system in house sciences treated or with attitude people have towards science as though they can just cherry pick it for what they want without real leising that emergent objective scientific are true whether or not you believe in them and if you're going to have legislation it really should be based on objective truth not what you might call personal truths that come from your religion or your politics or your own personal philosophies so yeah the nice states has has has some mending to do in this regard about this attitude toward science thinking about one of the videos that you put out recently went viral you talked about how the inability to agree on scientific truth can dismantle our democracy science deniers you say now create a recipe for the complete dismantling of our informed democracy do you believe there is an anti science sentiment in the in the united states right now well among some yes and but i don't think it's antiscience general those same people who might be in denial of certain scientific truths still use a smartphone you know and you know to find grandma's house on a gps grid they're there many of them are alive and didn't die in childbirth because of advances in medicine so i think fundamentally people cannot rationally say they're antiscience what i think they object to is.

"When it comes when it comes to god you're you're a believer it's kind of a fake thing i think you just have to either uh trust your believe from your own experiences our instincts or uh but but you're not going to get it from science i i don't think i i just think you know when you look at the species on this planet we have eyes to see we have a knows the smell we have years to here we are mouth to talk and to eat i mean somebody was a genius when they came up with all of us and i i just can't see how even if the universe itself is alive to the point where it's intelligent and maybe it has created all this as a god there's just no way this could happen by by a fluke i i agree with you i i i agree but i tell you other signed is neil degrasse tyson's sting he is on the show lots and he lectures for atheist uh uh they should he he's a he's a wellknown uh uh atheists' saw some of these uh some of these people are very strident about uh thinking that a belief in a guy is like an old superstition that's holding science back and how can you be so silly to believe that kind of thing but uh you know i to you and and and to me as well it seems actually obvious scientists bob why they call the expulson the god particle right well well they can answer that yeah yeah because because it's supposedly controls the massive other particles so since the controls other things they've given the federal level uh uh mitchell the late apollo astronaut to apollo fourteen a sixman littered with the walk on the moon great guy great guy and he was a staunch believer in extraterrestrial life and you know consciousness creating thoughts and everything else he was where he was one of a kind did you ever have a chance.
