Weekly Update: Neil deGrasse Tyson, Steve Brodner, Jessica Valenti

Happy Wednesday! Let’s see what our speakers are up to this week:


Lots of great reviews coming in on Neil deGrasse Tyson’s new book Astrophysics for People in A Hurry, and a great example is this one.  My favorite part is in the author note at the bottom of the article: “J. Kemper Campbell, M.D., is a retired Lincoln ophthalmologist who felt more intelligent by simply carrying this book around.”


When comedic luminaries like Kate McKinnon and Tracy Morgan show up to pay tribute to Alec Baldwin last weekend, the stage backdrop featured murals by our own Steve Brodner. This will be aired soon on SPIKE TV, watch your local listings


North Carolina has now weakened it’s rape laws, and Jessica Valenti isn’t taking it sitting down!
