“The Big Bang Theory” has been getting a lot of press lately because of its continuing success on CBS and its launch into syndication (not to mention the myriad promos on TBS during the baseball playoffs). It seems like overkill, even to fans of the show (like me). Still, if you want some behind-the-scenes stories, you’ll want to listen to this podcast of Neil deGrasse Tyson’s “Star Talk Radio” show, in which he sits down with “BBT” creator Bill Prady and science advisor David Saltzberg. One of the fascinating topics they touch on is the show’s connection to Nobel laureates, one of whom cited the sitcom in his Nobel Prize acceptance speech after seeing an episode in which Sheldon has a physics epiphany while acting as a busboy at the Cheesecake Factory.
