The Coolest Thing I’ve Heard In A Long Time

https://m.soundcloud.com/the-show-about-science/028-cracking-the-genetic-code-with-kevin-esvelt

Six-year-old Nate Butkus has had his own podcast, The Show About Science, for nearly two years.  He’s clearly a pro!  His interview skills are right on the money as he digs deep with his guests, who started out being easily accessible family friends, and now are respected scientists and other famous geeks.

I’m happy to see how Nate’s dad supports his kid.  When Nate said he wanted to do a show about science, his dad, instead of mumbling something about being way too busy, actually took Nate to a sound studio.   Then, when things took off, Nate’s dad made room in his busy life to be his young son’s recording engineer.  Good on both of them!

I hope you enjoy Nate as much as I do.

    • I just added a video so you can see Nate field questions from grownup interviewers! He’s kind of scary….but he’s still a giggly six-year-old.

      • OMG … LOL he’s funny … and I’m glad I wasn’t the only person who had to google something!
        Nice to see a kid passionate about something … and still be a kid … and I tell you what, his explanations for things are a whole lot easier to understand than most adults!

  3. Wow! Wow! Wow! I wonder what his reasoning would be when he won’t he eat his vegetables…

    • Heh heh….

      I raised a kid something like this one. He would probably explain that Brussels sprouts inhibit his expression of dopamine, or some such kid genius bullshit like that.

      Or he might simply stub up and cross his arms and shut his mouth tightly, and have to be carted off physically to his room for time-out! It’s often a shock to be reminded that a six-year-old genius is still a six-year-old 😄
