In episode 9, Its back to the A team (which stands for Apple, which points to "g", cuz their words have weight!) with Jocelyn Read and Dave Tsang! Today We're talking about the Alcubierre Warp Drive. You've probably heard of this before, but not in this detail. Oh, we definitely brought our Bee game to this episode!
To help keep us in line and on time, we’ve invited Zach Weinersmith from Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal and our sister podcast: The Weekly Weinersmith. It's lively and fun, so Sit Down in your seat, turn up the podcast, pay attention, and bee hive yourself.
Note: There’s some Extra bits after the end music. Two extra bits actually. There was a third very long conversation about bees, but It didn't make the cut.

Jocelyn is back, and this time it's with our good pal Fiona Burnell! Today we get to talk to Ryan Haupt of Science Sort Of fame. The Topic of today's show is The Dirac Sea! You know how when you cookie-cutter out a cookie from some rolled out dough, there's a hole left behind the size and shape of the cookie? particles are like that too. and the cookie dough is called the Dirac sea: named after Dirac, the great lover of cookies. Listen past the end credits for a bit where I try to explain the dirac sea using bees, and jocelyn sings a song about the everlovin' Hulk! HULK! HULK!
