00:00:00 - Charlie and Ryan are joined by Chad Jones, the host of the newest show in the Brachiolope Media Network, The Collapsed Wavefunction! Our first topic is about modifying the surface of the planet to run experiments about sand dune formations. It's possibly the most excited Charlie has been on the mic in a long time. Plus, Chad informs us about hydrophobic sand, which sounds dangerously fun.
00:18:55 - The drinks too, must flow. Charlie has the very proprietary Rogue Chocolate Stout. Chad, clearly worried he won't be invited back anytime soon, doubles down with a Jone's Soda and a Flying Cauldron Butterscotch Beer. Ryan begins his local beer journal with the totally expected Cerveza Panama.
oo:24:55 - Trailer Trash Talk goes tactical (whatever that means) with the preview for the all-new but not really new at all remake of the 80's 'classic' Robocop.
00:36:09 - Robots may not sweat, but people do. People also need drinking water. Well now some nerds have made a machine to turn human sweat into drinkable water. Refreshing, or just gross?
01:01:09 - PaleoPOWs are a lot drinking your own sweat; self-involved and perplexing to others. Charlie thanks Kris T. for a nice e-mail and hefty donation. Thanks, Kris! Ryan fields a correction about gender vs. sex from Episode 183 sent in by Liam T. (not from England). And Chad thankfully knows the answers to Liz C.'s questions of chirality and sugar substitutes. Be sure to bug Chad on Twitter and tell him about the chemical topics you want to hear on his podcast!
