Co-creators Bill Nye and Brannon Braga of Peacock’s The End Is Nye and Carla Easter, the Broh-Kahn Weil Director of Education at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, will discuss the making of the series and hopeful, scientifically informed ways forward from some of today’s possibly most devastating disasters. The event will be presented live on Zoom Wednesday, May 10, at 6:45 p.m. ET.
Nye, aka “The Science Guy,” uses camera magic in The End Is Nye to venture into large-scale global disasters, both natural and unnatural, as he demystifies them. He also teaches audiences how they can survive, mitigate and even prevent such potential cataclysms. The series focuses 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. Clips from The End Is Nye illuminate the conversation.
