The Scientific Odyssey

The Scientific Odyssey is a podcast exploration of scientific inquiry through it's history and philosophy.  New episodes weekly.

Oct 16, 2016

This week we dock in Venice for a questions and answers episode wherein I talk about podcasting, understanding quantum mechanics, the origin of the universe, and the evidence for human activity causing climate change.  Also address questions about how doing the podcast has affected my teaching and where some of the strange things in academia come from.  I also tell the story of the time I ran out of food but was saved by a do-it-yourself carwash in the middle of nowhere.
