Podcast 13 – Part 2



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.

On this podcast we get Jerry to come on and talk about life, liberty, and happiness. This also marks the end of our first season of the TDP Podcast. Look forward to next week with special guest Japanese physicists Yoshida.

Finally we get to know why Dillon kept saying thanks Jerry. A special thanks to our listeners who on Twitter gave us #ThanksJerry

Podcast 11 – Part 2



We start out part two by reviewing the part 2 beer, which was damn near a wine. Assuming that Doug manages to do something with the beer blog you can read more about it there. We give a big thanks to our listeners and answer a lot of questions and respond to comments. Thank you to everyone who submitted, Max also tries to redeem himself from misspelling physicists in a previous podcast. Spoiler alert, he will have to keep redeeming himself.

Our first main science topic (there was a brief spot on the Rosetta spacecraft and 67P) of the night involves talking (debating/arguing) about the James Webb Space Telescope and what wavelengths it can see in. We know it’s infrared but we digress about where IR ends.  We settle that the limit is 1mm and that the cosmic background radiation easily (kinda) lies within it. We return back to Rosetta and Mike brings up the news about the scientist who was criticized for this shirt while he was on camera. We give a brief (or not) tangent on how the ancient egyptian language was cracked via the rosetta stone before we get back to the actual comet 67P.

Max and Doug met earlier that day and did some calculations on finding the density of the comet. They were calculating based on the bounce time of the probe and trying to match the given values. There were a lot of problems and we also tried to get the answers before and during the show with no success. We bring up the topic again in future podcasts.

Enjoy,

–Mike, Dan, Doug, Max, and Dillon

Dan is back!

If you are reading this be sure to tell us Thanks Jerry. Why? I don’t know, but we worked it into the podcast.
