Neil deGrasse Tyson is one of my favorite speakers. I’ve gone on Tyson binges on youtube before, watching one video after another of talks that he’s given. You only end up smarter for doing so. And now there is a brand new, long form, talk to add to the list.
Stephen Colbert does a long form, over an hour, interview with Neil deGrasse Tyson on stage. There are bits you’ve heard other places (like his Titanic story), but lots of new perspectives as well. Treat your brain, and take the time to watch this.

i think this was one of the first Tyson interviews I watch and enjoyed it immensely. It’s great to see so much charisma, from both of them. It just makes you want to listen to what they have to say.
Another really interesting talk that Tyson did was at the Beyond Belief conference – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1HXuiIBF3I . The bit on naming rights is really thought provoking.
