Our old friend, and one of our earliest expert guests, Mo Hassanein is back - this time in Washington, DC in front of a live audience - to discuss Eugenics. You may remember Mo from the Obesity episode and the origin of the "Cool Beer" story. This time he's talking about selective breeding, free will, and how we manage to learn more about genes without crossing a line. Hear all this and more at earwolf.com
Our old math pal Abe Kunin joins us in his neck of the woods, Birmingham, AL to talk about infinity. How do you attempt to define infinity? What is Kyle like drunk? Can there be more than one infinity? Hear all of this as well as what life on the road was like at earwolf.com
As Tig, Kyle and David were never in the military, we thought it would be a good idea to bring in someone who was and try to learn a little bit about it. Loyal listener Andrew Shaver, a former Sargeant in the Army joins us in the hatch to talk about his time in the service. What is boot camp like? How difficult is it to process what you're seeing? And how is it interacting with other soldiers? Find out now.
We've mentioned him countless times on the podcast. He's one of our oldest pals, and a former roommate of Tig and David, and he finally joined us to chat about a subject he's at "A Mensa level of intelligence" with - it's Kjell Bjorgen talking with us about Emotional Intelligence live from the Cedar in Minneapolis. What is emotional intelligence? Do you have it? Can you learn it? Is it getting someone to share too much in a room full of strangers? Find out now!
As part of our US tour, we stopped in Chicago to do a show at the Abbey Pub. Our friend Trevor Anderson was in town that night playing the same venue with his band "Circle of Heat" so we decided to have him on as a guest to talk about music. Del LaRue showed up. Swamp rock, What's Nuts, and questions from the audience - you can hear all of it at earwolf.com
