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 - We're doing something a little different this week. Now that Charlie is an Assistant Professor he can assign things to students, and it turns out he assigned them a podcast about energy in Washington state. The topics are all across the board, everything from wind energy, solar power, LEED certification, salmon spawning, and more!

 

01:01:51 - Ben laments being at work while his home fridge is chock-full of strange juices. Charlie has kombucha which throws everyone for a loop and leads to a discussion of disgust (as informed by the book That's Disgusting). Ryan has some green tea because you have to take care of yourself, and some Eau de Brau, a white whiskey distilled in DC from DC beer. Ben thinks that also sounds disgusting. You be the judge!

 

01:16:33 - Round two of Charlie's students. Enjoy!

 

02:05:24 - PaleoPOWs are a lot like assignments, you can maybe get away with not doing them, but I wouldn't risk it. Ryan begins with a donation from Gordon Br., who wanted some advice on podcasting and was willing to pay for it (unnecessary, but very generous and appreciated).  Charlie asked for voicemails, and we have a drunken doozy from Jason in LA. Thanks for the laughs, Jason! And finally Ben has an e-mail from superman Morgan Marshall who watched a Shia LeBouf movie (on purpose) and now wants to know about our progress making fusion power a reality (instead of just a thing Iron Man has in his chest).
