Neil DeGrasse Tyson on the Science of Stephen King’s Dark Tower

Those of you that have heard the Dark Tower episodes of the podcast, know that I really enjoy the theoretical science that goes into it. One day, whilst pondering another MIND = BLOWN episode of StarTalk Radio, I got to thinking about the Tower, and how a scientist would view these various things. On a whim, I decided to shoot an email off to, none other than, the Director of the Hayden Planetarium and world renowned astrophysicist, Neil DeGrasse Tyson. To my surprise, he did a short email interview with me regarding the topic! I am so excited to bring you this interview! Dr. Tyson is a man that I look up to greatly, even as a lowly hobbyist of astronomy and physics. What follows is that interview, and I will say it again, MIND = BLOWN! Is there anything this guy doesn’t know?

iFanboy Interviews Walking Dead Creator, Robert Kirkman

In case you didn’t know, iFanboy is one of the top rated comic book podcasts. They recently attended the Image Expo in Oakland, CA and did an interview with “The Walking Dead” creator, Robert Kirkman.

I have been a listener of their podcast and a subscriber of their YouTube channel for a while now, and saw this pop-up in my YouTube news feed.

I happen to be a huge fan of “The Walking Dead” in both comic and TV show form, and figured that you may be as well. Give this a look, if you like.

Matt Interviewed on “Talk Stephen King” Blog

Talk Stephen King is one of the most prolific Stephen King Fan blogs out there. I visit the website on a regular basis and have had a link to Talk Stephen King in the sidebar of this blog for as long as its existed. That is why I am happy to announce that I have joined the ranks of a few other Stephen King bloggers that I have a great deal of respect for and greatly admire by being interviewed for Talk Stephen King. I’m hoping that David over at Talk Stephen King will take me up on my offer to join me for an episode of the Stephen King Fancast in the near future. Now that I’ve allowed my severely over swelled ego to babble all over the page, I would like to encourage you to head over to Talk Stephen King and check out the interview. While you’re there, you should subscribe to his blog in the same way that you do here. CLICK HERE to head over and check it out!

A/V Round-Up: Stephen King’s “11/22/63″

 

I am working on a review for “11/22/63″ right now, and thought I would tease that review (I’ll have it up tomorrow morning) with a selection of interesting videos that I found on YouTube that have to do with “11/22/63.” There are a few commercials here, but two of them include King talking about the book, so they are worth while. Also included, TV commercial, a sample from the audiobook and a funny Tuber. Enjoy! -@alloy_matt
