00:00:00 - For the first time since Episode 122 the newly-minted Doctor Jacquelyn Gill returns to the show! We start by grilling her about one of her most popular blog posts: How to argue with a scientist: A guide.
00:30:20 - One of the best ways to argue with a scientist is to start with a drink, symposium-style. Jacob continues trying to impress Ryan by half-heartedly enjoying a Duvel. Jacquelyn sticks with a new brew from an old favorite in the Wooly from Magic Hat. And Ryan bucks his high-gravity reputation with a Daytime Fractional IPA from Lagunitas.
00:37:40 - Since it's the holiday season Trailer Trash Talk decides to get in the spirit with the latest addition to the Die Hard franchise, Another Day to Die Hard. Our review is about as complimentary as the title is clever.
00:50:58 - Planes live closer to the sun than cars, or so we're told, therefore it was only a matter of time before someone built a solar-powered plane. Solar Impulse has done just that, and now intends to fly around the world. So how about that?
01:07:39 - PaleoPOWs are a lot like solar plane, everything can be going fine then a slight breeze ruins it all. Jacquelyn has an e-mail from Diana asking about avocado dispersion as explained by The Evolution Book. Jacob thanks John P. for a very generous donation. Thanks, John! And Ryan is proud to have inspired Stephanko from the Brachioboard forum to try their hand at science outreach in the Journal of Unanswered Questions.
