Episode #091: Dr. Brian Keating

We interview Dr. Brian Keating about his book, "Losing the Nobel Prize", and we talk physics, the Big Bang, the Multiverse, inflation, gravity, cosmic microwave background, Antarctica, and more. Russ gets pretty much everything wrong, while Kyle publishes his first physics paper.

"Dr. Brian Keating is a professor of physics at the Center for Astrophysics & Space Sciences (CASS) in the Department of Physics at the University of California, San Diego. He is a public speaker, inventor, and an expert in the study of the universe’s oldest light, the cosmic microwave background (CMB), using it to learn about the origin and evolution of the universe. Keating is a pioneer in the search for the earliest physical evidence of the inflationary epoch,[1] the theorized period of expansion of space in the early universe directly after the Big Bang."

  1. This is or is at least tied with my favorite episode of the podcast. Great knowledge shared. So much that I had to rewind a couple of times to try and comprehend what was being said while cleaning my brain matter off of the people next to me on my flight. Great interview all the way through. Looking forward to more of the chuckling brethren of the slippery slinky podcast in the weeks to come and can't wait to party down at Contact at the Cabin. PS will our buddy Sr. Booze be attending the event?
