Great minds think

John Oliver, host of “Last Week Tonight” on HBO, recently featured Stephen Hawking for the first installment of the show’s new “People Who Think Good” series.

Right out of the bag, Hawking puts Oliver on his toes, sarcastically agreeing that the interview was “the single greatest honor” that he has ever been given. Hawking and Oliver discuss the implications of the possibilities of parallel universes, the potential for artificial intelligence to overthrow mankind, and the chances of nuclear annihilation.

If this interview is any indication of what there is to come for the “People Who Think Good” series, color me excited to see subsequent installments.

Check out the hilarious interview below 🙂
