    The Cannonball Run is a simple, and highly illegal, record that despite having no governing body, is infamous within car culture.  To set a Cannonball Run record, you must traditionally start at the Red Ball Garage in Manhattan, then traverse the entire United States of America as fast as possible to finish at the Portofini Inn in Redondo Beach, California.  And now, thanks to open freeways during the COVID19 quarantine, that record has been broken 7 times in 5 weeks.  Anthony and Jeff talk about what it takes to undertake such a feat, and, of course, Burt Reynolds. Then, physicist Stephen Wolfram has published a new paper about a path forward for discovering a fundamental a theory of the universe - and it sounds a lot like a computer program.  Jeff and Anthony work their way through this dense concept and get excited about the possibilities it entails.

    Taking To Be Out of the Question

    Taking To Be Out of the Question

    If we are all inaccurate perception machines, fallible even in our own ability to process and recall events we experienced, then surely our language should represent how unknowable all things are, right?  Enter E-Prime, a version of the English language that eliminates any form of the verb 'to be'.  Jeff and Anthony discuss how valuable or annoying this could be.  Then, most people see splashes of colors and flashes of light on a not-quite-jet-black background when their eyes are closed. It’s a phenomenon called phosphene, and it and it is because our eyes and brains don’t shut off when denied light.  Anthony and Jeff talk about what they see when their eyes are closed, and why it is important.

    Dovetailing Through Space

    There are more than 2,000 active satellites orbiting Earth. At the end of their useful lives, some will continue circling as "zombie" satellites — neither alive nor quite dead.

    Let's Found a Science

    Let's Found a Science

    Screens, social media, and the internet... it's destroying the minds of young people, right? Well, a new study aims to answer that very question by comparing kid behavior from 2010 to kid behavior in 1998. Anthony and Jeff discuss the results, and whether the worry is more about the parents than the children. And it isn't often an entire new field of science is invented, but Leda Kobziar of the University of Idaho did just that. Jeff and Anthony learn about pyroaerobiology, and how it might revolutionize our understanding of the world.
