(FastCompany Co.EXIST)—Neil deGrasse Tyson would like the world to know that Charlie Sheen is a science nerd.

I ask astrophysicist and world-famous science educator what not-yet-booked guest he’d like to bring on his science talk show, Star Talk, and his choice of the beleaguered actor is the perfect example of what makes the show so accessible: It’s weird, fun, and unexpected.

Star Talk is Tyson’s popular radio show and podcast, which has aired since 2009. Now it is slated for an April 20 television debut on the National Geographic Channel in an interesting slot: At 11 p.m. Eastern, around when you’d normally tune into Jon Stewart orJimmy Fallon. It’ll be the first televised science talk show, let alone the first that’s on during late-night. Expect guests ranging from Star Trek actor George Takei to Twitter co-founder Biz Stone.
