Episode #248: Listener Communications

Having just returned from the Montana megafloods trip with Randall Carlson and crew, we aren't ready to continue the Character of Physical Law series yet, but we did have a backlog of emails we needed to get to, so we dedicate yet another episode to reading and responding to a series of fantastic and sometimes hilarious communications from listeners.

Special Episode: The 3 Ingredients of Rock & Roll

For this special episode we have most of the members of Kyle's band Fifty Dollar Dynasty in studio with us for a long-form conversation about making music, writing songs, and specifically, making the new Precession album. Through clouds of smoke and many beers we joke and laugh and poke fun at each other while also giving our history of making music and this album.



This episode is scheduled to drop the day of the public release of Precession, so go check it out at the FDD website:

Episode #247: The Character of Physical Law - Gravitation

We tackle the first in the series of seven lectures by theoretical physicist Dr. Richard Feynman titled "The Character of Physical Law", this first lecture being on the Law of Gravitation, the history of its discovery, and its wider application in the methods of science and the further discoveries of physics. Copernicus, Tycho, Kepler, Newton, and Einstein are among the giants on whose shoulders modern physics stands.
