Hear our interviews with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the Hayden Planetarium, as he talks about his approach to communicating science to the public; and Barbara Forrest, as she discusses the current state of the intelligent design movement; as well as a talk by Donald Johanson, offering his take on the controversy of popularizing science by touring ancient hominid fossils.
