Show Notes for TWS083: The World is Out To Get You (Sick)

A small personal note: this week I bid a sudden farewell to Chuck and Kreg of Technorama, on of my favourite
podcasts. They’ve decided to call it complete for the regular show, leaving me a bit in the lurch. I’ll survive, but it still hurts. I thank them both, and wish
them all the best in the future.

On the show this week:

  • Life Will Go On..
  • The birds and the bees do it: mysteries of sight unsound…
  • Evilization?
  • The other 90% of the show. (EXTRAS)

This week’s Challenge Question:
What one things are you going to do to change the future for the better?

TWS080: Body by Technorama, Brains by Kaku

On April 12, 2008, in Episodes, by the Encaffeinated ONE

Absolutely not a normal episode this time! I was a bit squeezed for time this week, so I present to you just the responses to the questions as well as a special treat: an interview! Although, it’s isn’t mine..

First, many thanks to Zaphodbblx, Arkle and Mr. Gadgets for their responses to previous weeks’ challenge questions. I’m only sorry that A.L.E.X. seems to be touchy about certain things..

Kreg Steppe is half of the dynamic duo of Technorama along with Chuck Tomasi. Technorama is a very fun weekly podcast focusing on “taking a lighthearted look at science, sci-fi and all things geek”. A while ago, they had the opportunity to interview Dr. Michio Kaku, renowned populist of science and deep-thinking professor of theoretical physics, and Kreg offered the interview to me to fill-in this episode, and I gratefully accepted.

So, the latter half of this show is that interview. If you enjoyed it, check out Technorama, leave a comment, maybe drop something in their donation bucket. Oh, and look up Dr. Kaku’s book, “Physics of the Impossible” and buy it!
