Rank #3: Episode 11: Of Matters Dark...

Podcast cover
Read more

Hello everyone. Allow me to introduce my old friend Ken Clark, and my new friend Amanda Bauer. He works on Ice Cube and she works in australia. But he's not a bar tender, and she is not a kangarooist. rather, they are my NEWEST TITANIUM PHYSICISTS! and today we're going to talk about how dark things matter. specifically, dark matter.

We've invited the clever Kai Nagata, the revolutionary canadian journalist onto the show. I felt that we'd need a journalist to figure out the nature of that which could not be seen but which clearly exists.

Check out the website for this episode especially. Both Amanda and Kai have done some fantastic things which can be found on the internet, and you should not miss out. Ken is fantastic too. Once I made him a spinach sallad and I didn't wash the spinach enough so it was super sandy, but he still wolfed it down and told me that it was the greatest salad he ever ate because he is VERY POLITE.

enjoy the show. 

and if you read this, send me an email the phrase "sky palace 7" to tiphyter@titaniumphysics.com  I'll give you a prize.

it's a Festival of wonderful.

listen, i'm going to admit it here. I didn't know much about how superconductors work when i chose this topic.

I don't know why i never learned how it worked, but I never did. whoops. 

anyway, the answer is crazy. it has to do with electrons getting married and having to get their credit card spending under control. 

I don't know if that Gail Lady visited them or what.

Hello everybody. 

What causes the northern lights? 

as far as I understand it... northern lights are what happens when polar bears drink cocacola. 

but... maybe I'm just being silly.

Today's guest is Nathan Lowell! Go listen to some of his books on your next car trip. when you arrive, you'll feel pretty good about everything. maybe you'll even want to go back to school. learning is cool. 

man, these things sure sound a lot different in the final cut than they do in their initial raw audiofile.

for one thing, we don't all talk like genius auctioneers. 

maybe you should try listening to this with the *1/2 speed* turned on on your ipod. @_@
