Ethan Siegel, Senior Contributor for Forbes

If you google our guest Dr. Ethan Seigel, you won’t see images of a white-coated scientist. He’s big, bald, bearded, and there’s even one where he’s wearing a tiara. But he’s a passionate science communicator for Forbes.com and theoretical astrophysicist and makes for a fascinating interview.

He Zooms in with Dean and Anna for a wide-ranging conversation about the Big Bang and dark matter.

Dean Regas is the Astronomer for the Cincinnati Observatory and a renowned educator, a national popularizer of astronomy and an expert in observational astronomy.
Anna Hehman is the Director of Development for the Cincinnati Observatory. Her official duties include ensuring the financial security of the Observatory and securing support for its outreach programs as well as exploring relationships with potential funders. Anna also has a Marketing background and manages the Observatory's social media, where she resists the urge to post adorable animal videos on the O's social media accounts with almost 100% success.
