Bill Nye has talked candidly about getting his show back on the air—in some form—on and off for the last couple of years. Without confirming anything, he’s talked about updating it for the new connected age—putting it on social media or YouTube—but wonders if he is even needed anymore in an age where there are already others who have taken up the torch in the name of science within those platforms.
