long time fan and follower of yours.

there is a young astrophysicist who wrote 3 hard science fiction novels by the age of 16! He was 14, 15, and 16 when he wrote them, edited them himself, and self published. I read all 3 and they are really great. They could easily be movies and all the science is real. his name is Max R. Rudin. I would love to hear you interview this brilliant kid. He wrote “A Truly Dead Rock” at 14, and during the pandemic he wrote “A Bottled Up Flame” and “A Somewhat Odd Start” all by the age of 16, and while getting a perfect SAT score, and making science and math videos on his You Tube channel “Graviton Media”.

He is like a junior you. I’ve never seen anyone besides you and him who have this kind of passion for science and astrophysics. Please have him on your show. He is a Freshman at Rice now majoring in Physics. It would blow my mind to hear your 2 minds together in discussion. Please, please, please. Kids like this give me hope for the future.

I love it so much.

Neil deGrasse Tyson can tell me about anything, anytime and I will enjoy it! The podcast is interesting and hilarious… and you walk away knowing things you would have otherwise never thought to ask about. What else can you really ask from a podcast?
