SIO169: Panel on Neil deGrasse Tyson Allegations, Part 1

I’m joined by Chantelle Boduel and Kristi Winters as the nation’s favorite astrophysicist and host of the reboot of Cosmos, Neil deGrasse Tyson, has been accused of sexual harassment by (at the time of recording) 3 women (and 1 more shortly after recording, see here.) The oldest accusation is of a horrifying date rape in college, the other two involve a woman who says he touched her inappropriately and an assistant who has an alarming story of Tyson attempting to seduce her. We go over the facts, Tyson’s response, and discuss how we feel about the accusations and work our way through some deeper #metoo issues.
