Episode 41: This One’s About COVID

Bad news: Tessa got COVID. Good news: She’s fine! And so is her wife, and presumably her lizard.

Episode 39: Emily Hunt on GALAXIES

In this episode we’re joined by astronomer Emily Hunt to talk about space, galaxies, the taxonomy of celestial bodies, and whether to put your brain in a robot body, and why.

Episode 34: Back to Space! with Teal

We chat with astrophysicist Teal about the James Webb Space Telescope, their research on space, what makes an atmosphere, and whether there’s any controversy to what makes an atmosphere, among other topics. There’s also another long rumination on death, which isn’t even because we’re living through a pandemic, we’re just Like That.
