John Hodgman interviewing Neil deGrasse Tyson for 30 minutes on The Sound of Young America. Go listen to it. Or download it (MP3). It’s as amazing as you expect it to be.

Hemant Mehta is the chair of Foundation Beyond Belief and a high school math teacher in the suburbs of Chicago. He began writing the Friendly Atheist blog in 2006. His latest book is called The Young Atheist's Survival Guide.

The Sound of Young America never disappoints.

Neil deGrasse Tyson is my hero. His passion is infectious. Thanks for the link.
