The hatch wouldn't open this week, so we recorded from Kyle's living room. After meandering through lots of topics at the beginning, we finally settled into talking about goals. What makes us have goals? What is the best way to accomplish goals? Do we have a collective goal as a species? And who let blue whale in? Listen now at earwolf.com
All the way from Bellingham, WA - Andy Bishop joins us in the hatch to talk about teaching. What makes a good teacher? How would he have tried to appeal to Tig as a fourth grader? And how would 'Teach' handle the situation? A loyal blastronaut, as well as the son of a blastronaut, Andy not only makes a great guest - but he also brought everyone personalized gifts. So we love him. Listen now at earwolf.com

Scientists are always played in a pretty similar way on television and movies, but are they all so boring? Is it OK for a scientist to be sexy, or funny, or even just normal? We invited in Crystal Dilworth, a Ph.D. candidate in molecular neuroscience at Caltech and Patrick Scott, a film maker and creator of the web series 'Fail Lab' to discuss what makes a scientist tick, what is changing within the science community, and whether or not scientists have a responsibility to keep lasers out of the hands of dangerous people. listen now at earwolf.com
