How can I become a guy? You know, I'm a little worried about you, Chuck. When Startalk returns more of my interview with Seth Macfarlane discussing the science of family guy. Oh, okay. We're back. Start off the American Museum of Natural History, Chuck. Nice. Charles Liu. Always great to have you guys were talking about science and animation. Science and family guy, featuring my interview with Seth Macfarlane. The guy's a crazy genius. That is true in many dimensions. Who can mix art and science together knowing the difference between the two and effectively to Yeah. So with shows as popular as Family Guy there's some obligation to wield that power with responsibility, Would you say, like Spiderman? Everybody gets one?

How do I know you're going to think that one? So that's that's being extremely politically incorrect to make a whole other point. And so so comedy can do that. And he's mixing a little bit of science because he's referencing the original Cosmos from 1980 which is very cool. And what's even more cool is I believe I heard the word Jesus Saurus. Well, I have to. I have Seth Macfarlane in my office. I had to ask him directly about that. Carl Sagan IQ click. Let's check it out. You voicing?
