Episode #154: Correspondence and Physics

We've gotten way behind on listener emails because of the guests on the last three shows, so after we open some 1up boxes and do the drawing for the SnakeBros Hat prize, we read through a lot of excellent emails that spark conversation on many topics.

In the third segment Kyle reads some articles on recent information about the rings of Saturn, volcanism and extinction events, and how the Mayans didn't predict the end of the world, again.

The final segment goes long as we discuss the problem of time dilation in relativity, and how there might be different and interesting ways to picture that in your mind, and what that might mean for how the electromagnetic spectrum actually interacts with the universe.

Episode #153: The Skeptiko Journey with Alex Tsakiris

The host of the excellent podcast Skeptiko, Alex Tsakiris, joins us for a wide-ranging conversation covering many topics from ancient aliens to the nature of consciousness to conspiracy to the question of evil. Alex has interviewed hundreds of researchers and scientists on his show in his quest to gain a better understanding about who we are and what we are "supposed" to be doing here in this existence, and his show has taken him on a path of "following the data" as much as possible to find answers to these questions, or at the very least, to find better questions to ask.

Episode #152: Geology and Ancient Ruins with Bob Johnson

This is another special show with a guest who joins us in-studio. Bob Johnson is a geologist, now retired, who spent 35 years traveling extensively in North Africa and the Middle East. He has visited many of the ancient sites we have discussed on our show, and gives us his personal perspectives of the many places he has visited, including the Serapeum, the Giza Plateau, Ba'albek, Petra, Malta, and many more.
We also discuss a very interesting case he worked on as a scientist and geologist, where mysterious, spontaneous fires were plaguing a small village, and the people living there were convinced the fires were being caused by the jinn.

We also talk about the science of geology itself, about uniformity and catastrophism, climate change and ice ages, flood myths and other ancient stories that may be supported by geological data, and much more.
