BOSTON, MA – Today, the Museum of Science, Boston’s Center for Space Sciences, in partnership with the popular podcast Sing for Science, announced it will host a live episode recording in the Charles Hayden Planetarium featuring 11-time Grammy Award-winning producer and musician Jack Antonoff in conversation with David Kaiser, Germeshausen Professor of the History of Science and Professor of  Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. 

Antonoff and Kaiser will discuss the nature of time from Kaiser’s perspective as a theoretical physicist, drawing connections to the lyrics of Bleachers’ song “The Waiter,” in which Jack sings about “the notion that time’s gonna stop” and “the notion that time’s on a slip.” 

"I’m thrilled to be back at the Museum of Science and to dig into one of the most fascinating puzzles of our age: Does time emerge from deeper principles of physics or from human biology and consciousness” said Matt Whyte, creator and host of Sing for Science. “Broader questions like these bridge the gap between everyday human experience and incredibly complex science. That Jack Antonoff, one of the busiest and most important figures in music today is drawn to this topic speaks volumes about science’s capacity to engage us.”

Sing for Science, produced by Talkhouse, is a groundbreaking, multidisciplinary podcast that pairs an acclaimed recording artist with a specially chosen scientist, using one of the musician's most beloved songs or interests as the launching pad for a discussion about a specific topic in a connected field.

“We’re delighted to continue our partnership with Sing for Science following our success with David Byrne and Patrik Svensson,” said James Monroe, creative director of programming of the Centers for Public Science Learning at the Museum of Science. “This conversation between Jack Antonoff and David Kaiser, two incredible minds, will delve into the nature of time and celebrate the work of one of today's most singular talents. We are grateful to our partners at Sing for Science, Jack, and David for supporting the work of the Center for Space Sciences through this fascinating and one-of-a-kind discussion.”

The live podcast recording will be hosted by the Museum of Science on Monday, June 10, at 1 p.m. Tickets are $25 for General Admission and $20 for Obstructed View seating. Museum of Science members get first access to tickets on Wednesday, May 15, at 11 a.m. and will open to the public at 1 p.m. Visit for more information and to purchase tickets. 

About Sing for Science 
Sing for Science is an award-winning, Top 10 Music Interview Podcast on Apple’s charts where musicians talk about science with scientists, scholars, and science journalists. Past episodes include Korn frontman Jonathan Davis and science writer Mary Roach on mortuary science, SIA, and sex therapist Alex Katehakis on attachment theory, Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo and Python creator Guido Van Rossum on coding, and dozens more that engage science-curious fans of music like no other podcast. The show is hosted by New York musician Matt Whyte, whose credits include composing for Netflix’s Tiger King and Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened and fronting the mid-aughts band Earl Greyhound. Matt cites his participation in a Pete Seeger memorial concert at NYC’s Joe’s Pub as the podcast’s inspiration; it was there that he became acutely aware of the breadth of issues to which Pete applied the power of song in his pursuit of change.

About Jack Antonoff
Few 21st century artists have had the cultural impact of Jack Antonoff. Through his work as a producer for artists like Lana Del Rey, Taylor Swift, The 1975, and Lorde, Antonoff has won 11 Grammys to date (including a third consecutive Producer of the Year win in 2024) and filled album of the year lists with records like Norman F*****g Rockwell! and Folklore. For years, critics have wondered how his work is so successful and what defines it when it doesn’t quite sound like anything else (Antonoff ignores what’s on trend, even when that’s his last project). His methodology, he reveals, is the same for his production work as it is for writing his music with Bleachers: “The great journey and struggle of creating your sound is to drill further and further into it, while the whole time shocking yourself and the people around you.”

About David Kaiser
David Kaiser is Germeshausen Professor of the History of Science and Professor of Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is the author of several award-winning books about modern physics, including How the Hippies Saved Physics: Science, Counterculture, and the Quantum Revival (2011). His latest book, Quantum Legacies: Dispatches from an Uncertain World (2020), was honored as among the best books of the year by Physics Today and Physics World magazines. A fellow of the American Physical Society, Kaiser has received MIT's highest awards for excellence in teaching. His work has been featured in Science, Nature, the New York Times, and The New Yorker. His group's recent efforts to conduct a "Cosmic Bell" test of quantum entanglement, together with Nobel laureate Anton Zeilinger, were featured in the documentary film Einstein's Quantum Riddle.
