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 - This week, Joe and Ryan chat with Mike Snyder, c0-founder and chief engineer of Made In Space, which has already begun 3D printing all sorts of things for astronauts about the International Space Station. So kind of a big deal.

 

00:21:50 - Even co-founders need a beverage now and again, and Mike is no exception. But since they're productive people, all Mike has to promote is coffee, water, and tea (he likes Zelda themed blends from Adagio). Ryan takes a different tact with some Herman Marshall bourbon out of Dallas, TX. Joe brings up the rear with some Death Valley root beer.

 

00:33:03 - Part 2 of our interview with Mike brings even more science and engineering to the table! Be sure to check out Mike on Twitter and like Made in Space's Facebook page!

 

01:01:25 - PaleoPOWs are a lot like 3D printing; we're not totally sure why it's a big deal, but it probably is. Ryan has a donation from Andre R., who also left a comment on episode 205 about his favorite local cryptid/upcoming brewery. Joe also has a donation from Ron E. (Ron Howard? You decide!) who thanks us for distractions during long runs and promised an iTunes review which Ryan thinks he's reading but is wrong. It's actually from RtwoDtoo, so thanks for that! There is much talk of Ryan's beer consumption, if that's the sort of thing you're interested in you can become beer friends and follow along with his Untappd profile. Also, be sure to participate on our poll as to whether or not whales are the bad guys.

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).
