Episode #117: The History of Precision

Archer joins us again in the Tangent Cube to give a slideshow presentation about precision. What does it mean to do precision work? How do you get a perfectly straight edge, or a perfectly flat surface? How do we do it in the modern day, and what does that mean for highly precise work done in ancient times?

This was an awesome conversation. We really recommend watching the youtube video so you can see the slides.

Enjoy!

Episode #116: Stone Chambers of Vermont

We go through a bunch of news stories and listener emails that have been building up, leading to discussions on numerous topics such as accoustic levitation, cosmology, cosmic rays, the Edfu Building Texts, and more.

We also talk about our recent week-long trip to the state of Vermont, and our explorations there to find the Calendar 1 and Calendar 2 stone chambers, our tour of a Serpentine Marble Quarry, and also a bit about our explorations of another site that is somewhat controversial in terms of its possible origins.
