  • Episode 253 – Heartland Institute Bullshit

    whyscientists2dWebThis week, we are joined by bio anthropologist Greg Laden to talk about “Why Scientists Disagree About Global Warming,” a bullshit book distributed by the Heartland Institute to science teachers.  Being actually qualified to speak on the topic of climate change, Greg helps us unpack why the book is bullshit as well as why the Heartland Institute wasted money by distributing the book in the first place.  He also has a blog called “Greg Laden’s Blog” and he explains why it’s called that.


  • Episode 178 – Women in STEM Fields

    fNma9vYVWe were once again recording at Omegacon for this week’s episode!  Our guest was our friend Ellie Younger, who is an Engineer.  We talked with her about being a woman in a field traditionally dominated by men and we heard a few of many depressing stories about the obstacles in her path.  We also talked about the question of whether or not we are discouraging young women from studying the arts when we encourage them to study math and science.


  • Episode 105 – Jessica Fletcher is a Serial Killer

    jessicafletcherToday’s episode was recorded live at CONvergence 2014.  We even got the audience to sing our theme song.  Our guest was Raychelle Burks, better known as Dr. Rubidium!  Ray is a chemist so we spent the entire episode talking about Chemistry!  Actually that was the plan.  We ended up spending quite a bit of time talking about “Murder, She Wrote.”  We did eventually get to Chemistry, though, so if that’s your thing, just hang in there.  Ray also got a crack at our five questions.
