The Titanium Physicists Podcast

Geoffrey Lovelace and I talk about Interstellar. 

mostly we geek out over the relativity.

we ran out of time before we could make this podcast 3 hours long. 

it was definitely a possibility.

Episode 52: Through The Mirror

I was super excited about this Episode! Our Guest is Patrick McHale! We Talk about CPT symmetry (Charge-Parity-Time inversion symmetry), which leads to discussions about antimatter, and the nature of time. it's a SUPER EPISODE! It goes ON AND ON! CRAZY AWESOME PHYSICS!

 

Physicists Tia Miceli and Ryan Martin!

the question today: "Howdy,

 The Higgs boson turned out to be a massive particle from what I

understand.  It is also supposed to be a field through which

everything moves.  So, there must be a lot of them, I reason.  So,

could this be the missing mass of the universe?  Maybe there is some

obvious reason that it is not, but I have not heard the idea mentioned

and it seems obvious to me."

Mr. Noah Zimmerman joins us to talk about nuclear magnetic resonance. you know MRIs? "Magnetic resonance Imaging" is what it stands for, "Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging" is what it actually stands for. Essentially, magnets are used to make the nuclei in your atoms stand up and dance. 

 

Our experts are the Mighty Dr. Fiona Burnell, and the Mighty Dr. Abby Shockley. 

THIS IS SO MUCH FUN!

Episode 50: The Death Of Spirals

Galaxies are cool. some are eliplical (blobby) some are swirly. there's a reason why. Our guest today is Katrina Griffiths from the verity podcast. and my experts are Sean Moran and Laura Hainline (they're married. that's why they keep interrupting each other. it's kinda sweet, i think)

 

wooo! 50 episodes!

Christopher Reynaga is an awesome author, and he has written the best story ever which is called  I Only Am Escaped Alone to Tell Thee . look it up, a link to a podcast reading of the story will be on teh website.

 

Anyway, I wanted to talk to him so I told him that I'd explain many worlds Quantum mechanics to him. well, that and copenhagen interpretation, why not.

So this week's episode is where the math side of physics meets the philosophy side of physics!

Experts are Ken Clark and Tia Miceli .

Domains of Influence with Matt Sheehy and Brent Knopf

Some famous singing clowns once sang a song about magnets. The world looks down on a singing clown's ignorance, but how many of us can actually explain how magnets work? 

the question is rhetorical, though, because the answer is obviously "yes I can do it because i am a physicist and i have clever physicist friends who also know a lot about it." i recruited my old pals Brian Sullivan and Fiona Burnell! 

Our guests today are Matt Sheehy from the band 'Lost Lander' and Brent Knopf from the band 'Ramona Falls'. 

the show is super extra long and we talk about everythinggg! from how magnetic fields are generated, to how magnets work, to how to levitate a frog, to how the sun and earth's magnetic fields work, to how guitar pickups work. it's a good episode.

you should note that a lot of the topics we mention (solar flares, superconductors) have their OWN EPSIODES all about them.
