This week’s episode of Hot Ones features none other than astrophysicist, television host and public intellectual Neil DeGrasse Tyson. Over the course of half an hour, Tyson fields questions about science, debunks flat-Earthers, fact-checks rap lyrics and tells the story of the time he considered becoming a stripper while he was in grad school.

Check out the full interview above.
