Your drunk physicists are Dan, Doug, and Mike. We have been drinking and discussing physics for the last 15+ years. Now you get to hear us through the magic of the Internet.
We start this podcast off by drinking the last of the Lost Abbey brews. Thank you Max for bringing in these beers. This was a well rounded beer, and spoiler alert: Doug cannot tell the difference between citrus and cloves.
Two items are discussed in this podcast.
Section 1: The 8 books that NDGT thinks that every educated person should read. We read off Neil’s reasoning for selecting each book and then give out takes on the books. Then we try and come up with better books we think would satisfy the same criteria…or just better in general. Mike reads 4chan’s \b version of the bible. Normally we digress but books and science books especially are ‘sacred’ to us, and we actually spend time trying to present better books for people to read.
Of course we laugh and have a good time doing it.
Section 2: Predicting what’s going on in 2050.
Books we Mention
- The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution
- Liespotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deception
