Excellence

As usual, Bill inspires and playfully bullies us into understanding ourselves and the world around us. So happy I finally found this podcast. Thanks!

Bill Nye Rocks!

I have been following Bill since the TV show, “Bill Nye the Science Guy”. He explained science in a funny and easy to understand way.

He hasn’t changed. He still makes science easy to understand and very approachable. Wonderful show for anyone who is curious.
