In this podcast, Neil deGrasse Tyson visits Portland, Oregon, to participate in a monthly event called the "Science Pub." Sponsored by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, the "Pub" invites researchers to talk about their work, answer audience questions, and have a beer. It’s a science conversation done Oregon style. The original event lasted over two hours, but we trimmed the Q&A down to about 30 minutes.
