Science... sort of
Conversations about things that are science, things that are sort of science, and things that wish they were science. A member of the Brachiolope Media Network.
 

00:00:00 - Charlie tells us about an elegant new study which has shed light on just what type of ocean might be sloshing around under the ice of Europa (see Episode 15 for a Europa refresher). Jacob and Ryan are impressed by both the science and Charlie's explanation.

00:19:21 - Drinking salt water is a bad idea, but good thing that's not what we're having. Jacob is under the weather with a cold so Ryan shares his Hot Toddy recipe, in a mug combine:

  • 1/4-1/2 fresh lemon juice
  • few spoonfuls of honey
  • shot of booze (bourbon, brandy, rum all work)
  • fill mug with hot water
  • garnish with cloves pushed into a lemon peel
  • ENJOY!

Ryan is influenced by Charlie's travels and as such is having a Wilco Tango Foxtrot from Lagunitas. Whereas Charlie came back with a nice bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon from his trip to Napa Valley.

00:26:04 - Trailer Trash Talk dives back into the Marvel Universe to chat about the continued adventures of everyone's favorite iron-clad avenger in the upcoming Iron Man 3. Ryan also remembers that he's been working with Marvel on the comics side to help promote some upcoming Iron Man stories. Read all 3 parts of the interview herehere, and here.

00:40:15 - A Seattle bar bans Google Glass before they even hit the market. But what is Google Glass? Do we want it? Should we want it? Big thoughts are discussed.

00:54:56 - PaleoPOWs are lot like dive bars, we ban things that would never get in anyways. Jacob announces a new recurring donation from Zach G. who had our show accompany him along the entirety of the Appalachian Trail. Thanks and congratulations, Zach! Ryan clears up a few questions that have been bugging Graeme N. about the show's music, fossil ink, and some stuff that Ben said about the center of the universe. And Charlie ends it all with a classic 5-star iTunes review from Sephiroth209.
