Rank #2: Episode 4: The Solar Neutrino Problem

Rank #3: Episode 11: Of Matters Dark...
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 email@example.com I'll give you a prize.

Anyway, we're talking about superfluids today. What's a superfluid? Well. It's what you get when you cool helium down really cold. It has strange properties. Watch some videos on it, if you have time... It might help.
Fiona and Jocelyn are back to help me explain. well. try to explain.
Rank #9: Episode 56: What "In Tangles" Meant

BIOPHYSICS! Nicole Prent! Jacqueline Townsend! Broadway actor Brian Cross joins us to talk about how biophysicists use frequency doubling of photons To LOOK INSIDE CELLS! well, it's really cool I can't wait for you to hear it!
Rank #11: Episode 20: Time Dilates When You're Having Fun
we got carried away on the discussions in this one.
the raw recording was about 100 minutes long,
and even after some heavy editing, i couldn't get the "regular show" part under 40 minutes *shame*.
perhaps... your clock is just running faster than mine?
well... it's summer.
anyway! This episode's guest is Michael Mookie Terracciano, author of the webcomic "Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire"
and we're taking the special event of our 20th episode to talk about SPECIAL RELATIVITY.
Rank #12: Ep 49: Parallel Philosophies with Christopher Reynaga
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 .
Rank #13: Episode 55: Laser Laser Laser Laser Laser Laser
- the audio turned out way crunchier than i thought it would be while we recorded. I tried to fix it.
- 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.

Rank #14: Episode 18: That Superconductor Episode
Fiona Burnell! Darren Peets! Ryan North!
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.
Rank #15: Episode 17: See Spot Sun!
Hellooo. today we're going to talk about how the solar dynamo causes sunspots to form.
and we're doing it with David Malki!
this episode is pretty rad.
listen past the end music to hear a lot of silly conversations. there are a lot of them. :( why does my show have to be half an hour of ramming physics down your gullet? why cant i leave the funny and distracting stuff in context? If you know the answer to these questions, email me, and I'll give you a prize.

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. @_@
