Connected: The Hidden Science of Everything Season 2 Host
Science journalist Latif Nasser serves as the sole host of ‘Connected’ and he is expected to return in the second season as well. Nasser is the Director of Research at the New York-based Public Radio show ‘Radiolab’. Here, he is seen narrating stories, ranging from snowflake photography and medieval robots to a polar bear who had a sexual fantasy for grizzly bears. He has additionally hosted ‘The Other Latif’, given two TED talks, penned the Ideas section for Boston Globe, and had earned his Ph.D. from Harvard’s History of Science department.
What Can Connected: The Hidden Science of Everything Season 2 be About?
The first season of ‘Connected’ explores the intriguing ways in which we are connected to each other, to the world, and to the universe as a whole. The episodes reveal multiple interesting facts like how a single Google search uses up the same amount of energy as a standard LED lightbulb that has been powered on for three minutes. Again, host Nasser explains how the clouds in the sky are similar to the cloud used to store data. One episode tells us that the Sahara Desert’s dust somehow nourishes the Amazon rainforest.
Alongside enriching us with so many fascinating scientific tidbits, ‘Connected’ follows Nasser as he jokes about where the queen’s poop goes, Beyoncé and Benford’s Law, and an elevator. We hope season 2 embraces this same entertaining and informative format and continues telling us more amazing stories from this wonderful, interlinked planet!
