    On The Verge is ready for a lot of things, but we clearly weren't ready for renowned astrophysicist Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, who stopped by to talk space exploration, life as a meme, and why he carries a slightly-illegal laser with him at all times. After we recovered, we talked about what we learned this month: Nilay took a trip to SXSW, Josh visited the new iPad line and tried to steal Greg Packer's seat, and we found out what happens when whiskey meets dubstep. It was something. Full show below, and lots of clips to follow, in case you're a nonlinear sort of sapien.

    Oh, and make sure you check out our musical guest Blip Blip Bleep, whose album "Like Track Stars" is available on iTunes, Spotify, and Rdio.
