Description

Bill Nye is on a mission to change the world— one phone call at a time. He’ll tackle your curliest questions on just about anything in the universe. Give him a call! Perhaps you’ve wondered: Should I stop eating cheeseburgers to combat climate change? How often should I really be washing my pillowcase? Can I harvest energy from all those static-electricity shocks I get in the winter? With a little help from his co-host Corey S. Powell, field experts, and special celebrity guests, Bill will answer those questions and convince you that science rules!

Caller Valentina wonders how a generation inundated with information can prioritize nukes as an issue, while caller Larry suggests that maybe the answer to this world problem is as simple as blasting them all into space. Science historian and nuclear weapons expert Dr. Alex Wellerstein joins us to talk history, address those concerns, and more.
