Bill Nye is well-known for being a science educator and as the creator, producer, and star of the successful children’s TV show Bill Nye The Science Guy. But he has also written several books, given speeches across the country, and currently serves as the CEO of The Planetary Society. Next month, his new show, Bill Nye Saves The World, premieres on Netflix and will tackle topics such as climate change, video games, and alternative medicine. One thing Bill Nye didn’t expect to be doing is clashing with politicians. In our interview with Bill Nye, he discusses some of the frustrations he’s faced being a science educator under a government that increasingly rejects science.
