In Peacock’s “The End is Nye,” Bill Nye, aka “the science guy,” uses camera magic to venture into large-scale global disasters, both natural and unnatural, as he demystifies them. Of course, he also teaches audiences how they can survive, mitigate, and even prevent such potential cataclysms. The series focused on topics ranging from viruses and climate change to wide-scale catastrophes like electrical blackouts, apocalyptic dust storms, supervolcano eruptions, and comets slamming into Earth.  

Hear Nye, along with showrunner and executive producer Brannon Braga (Star Trek and Cosmos: Possible Worlds), and Carla Easter, the Broh-Kahn Weil Director of Education at the National Museum of Natural History, as they discuss the making of the series and hopeful, scientifically informed ways forward from some of today’s possibly most devastating disasters. Clips from “The End is Nye” illuminate their conversation.
