Mathematician Tao Gaede is joined by true-to-life scientists Tyler J Wenzel and Gunnar Leitner. Together, they monitor the discussions of their highly intellectual monkeys, and release the recordings for your pleasure. Infinite Monkeys aims to remove barriers of learning and make everyone the best human they can be. So, give us a listen, you might just learn something.

    Whales are worth a trillion dollars

    Whales are worth a trillion dollars

    This month on the Infinite Monkeys cast, we chat with friends from BC whales. We not only talk about what BC whales does as an organization, but about why whales are so important to our ecosystem and - surprisingly - economy? This chat was thoroughly enjoyable for us, and we hope you learn something, as we sure did.

    Science is a house of cards

    Science is a house of cards

    After chatting with Tao, the monkeys ponder why it takes so long to get an enjoyable job, and why this oppressive model builds a house of cards rather than a solid, reinforced structure. Will this one day be the end of science or the beginning of the next generation?

    What exactly does a mathematician do?

    What exactly does a mathematician do?

    A conversation with Tao Gaede about his journey to becoming a mathematician and how he discovered at an older age that he wants to do math for a living. Tyler does not understand math, so he tries to figure out what a mathematician actually does. More importantly, why would someone find math fascinating? In the end, the two realize that math and science are not all that different.

    The last two years have also taught us that the insane barrier to higher learning (e.g., tuition costs) is a disservice to humanity. In 2022, we want to spend several episodes a year talking with experts and learning from them. Afterwards, we will listen in on the monkeys think about what the expert shared. This is the first episode of our new mission - let everyone onto the playground.

    A mad scientist growing brain tissue from his own blood

    A lot has happened in the last 2 years. Tyler is now a doctor and we have all had to deal with the global plague. Tyler, apparently motivated by the bizarre world we now live in, now grows brain tissue from his own blood in the name of science. What does that mean? Why does he do this? Well, you will just have to listen.

    Ducks die from bread, but Tyler won't go bankrupt because ducks don't BUY bread, human's do, but humans put the bread in the milk to get it soggy for 3 hours - PARISIAN dog le chien oui/non bibliothèque bonjour.
    AKA
    Feeding your dogs EXPLAINED: put a smile on your dog's face, feed it science milk bread in cereal.

    GODS HAVE NO EMOTION, but Gunnar's dog is a genuinely happy boy.

    Pet food conspiracies:  Pigeons and old people have a deep connection (unity through opposites Heraclitus style) through bread.

Explorative

Great podcast that gets you thinking about your own stance on morally charged topics and no topic is too controversial for discussion. Love the concept as well, in a time where people are so easily offended and outraged, a place to safely explore different concepts, ideas, beliefs etc. is needed now more than ever. Looking forward to more episodes!

From serious to silly at a moments notice

This podcast makes me think about my own values and morals, but it also then randomly drops some cool science on my head like how the colours change at high speeds.
