What do actor George Takei, entrepreneur Arianna Huffington and former President Jimmy Carter have in common with a sound designer from Fairfax, Virginia? Along with host and renowned astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson, they bring life to “StarTalk,” National Geographic Channel’s first-ever late night talk series. 

Frank Scheuring, sound designer/mixer at Capital Post Production is given one day to design, mix and deliver each 60-minute program. Scheuring says the schedule is made possible by the advanced technology in Capital Post Production’s Fairlight suites, including isotope Advanced, a state-of-the-art noise reduction tool.

Aside from technology, it helps to have passion for the project. “I love the show,” said Scheuring, “it’s informational and entertaining, and I had a real fan-boy moment when Christopher Nolan was the guest. I’m a big Interstellar and Batman fan.”

“StarTalk,” brings celebrities, scientists and comedians together to discuss topics ranging from the environment, to space travel and extraterrestrial life. Produced by Drew Pulley for National Geographic Studios, the series builds on Tyson’s popular radio show and podcast. “StarTalk,” airs Mondays at 11 p.m. EST, on the National Geographic Channel.
