John Oliver, host of “Last Week Tonight” on HBO, lately included Stephen Hawking for the first section of the show’s fresh “People Who Think Good” sequences. Right out of the bag, Hawking sets Oliver on his toes, ironically harmonizing that the discussion was “the single greatest honor” that he has ever been given. Hawking and Oliver debate the effects of the options of parallel universes, the potential for artificial intelligence to takeover mankind, and the odds of nuclear total destruction.
If this discussion is any clue of what there is to originate for the “People Who Think Good” series, color me thrilled to see later installments.
