OWN YOUR ORIGIN: TRANSLATING STORY AND SCIENCE FOR THE MASSES
Television is used to entertain and distract but it can also be used to educate. That being said, there is a lot of boring educational programs out there.

The key is to be able to translate what you do so everyone can digest your science and realize how cool all of you are.
