Appologies.

  1. the audio turned out way crunchier than i thought it would be while we recorded. I tried to fix it. 
  2. My "Doctor Evil" impression is way crappier than it sounded in my head. after all these years of thinking i had a good doctor evil impression.. turns out i suck.

THIS EPISODE IS ABOUT LASERS!

Dr. Abby Shockley and Dr. Tia Miceli join me in trying to explain lasers to a very Patient Aaron Fischer. this episode is super fun.

Me and Amanda Bauer Answer a question from dave!

"First of all I really enjoy the podcast!  And for a while I’ve been wanting to send in this question and think it would be perfect for the new segment.  My question is:  What direction would one look to see the big bang? Now, I understand that we are in an ever expanding universe and technically the big bang is in all directions but I guess I’m having a hard time mentally grasping the concept. I’ve heard the balloon analogy but I just can’t understand that if I was expanding on an inflating balloon I would still be able to look to the center of said balloon, right?!. Conversely, would it be possible to look away from the big bang and into the space our universe is expanding into?

 

I hope this hasn’t already been covered but if it has would it be possible to go more in depth with an explanation of the expansion itself. Thanks for such an awesome podcast!

Vicky Scowcroft and David Tsang were talkin' to me, and i was like "Yoooo what kind of show topic should we do" and Vicky was like "Cepheid Variables" so i was like... hmm. A star who tells us about distance and travelling...

Who else should I ask on the show to talk about these crazy stars, but Lucy Knisley, star of the comic book world and the travel memoir? 

mmm. happy winter, everyone.
