Neil deGrasse Tyson Thinks Your Ghost Stories Are Bullshit

Astrophysicist, Director of the Hayden Planetarium, everyone’s-imaginary-best-friend and American Treasure Neil deGrasse Tyson covers a timely subject on his StarTalk Radio show: ghosts. Along with his co-host Eugene Mirman, Tyson essentially shits all over my love of Ghost Hunters, and your personal experience at that creepy hotel you stayed in once.  In fact, it takes him a single minute to effectively ruin every ‘out of the corner of my eye’ ghost story ever:

As if that wasn’t enough to ruin your campfire stories, here’s a full episode covering Spooky Science.  From paranormal activity to modern scary movies, Tyson brings guests Joe Nickell (a paranormal investigator), Mary Roach (author of Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife) and Phil Plait (The Bad Astronomer) along with Mirmen to cover a whole slew of things that make Halloween a lot tamer than it was 47min ago.

If you need to restore faith in your ability to perceive reality, I suggest listening to StarTalk Radio on the regular.  If anyone can make me think that I’m finally grasping an impossible concept, it’s the incomparable NDT.
