    12 – Our Berlin Episode

    Episode 12 of our show is our last archived episode from 2018. We talk about the present and past of the City of Berlin, Germany. Mandy talks about her first trip to Berlin which happened just prior to the episode recording. We touch upon topics of fun and topics of historical importance. Among them, we discuss...





    Culinary Berlin, including their white asparagus craze.

    David Bowie's "Berlin" period during the late 70s.

    Various remembrances of the Holocaust in Berlin.

    And certain areas of note that remind us of Germany's role in WW2.





    This is one of our longest episodes, so sit back, relax, and listen to two friends talk about one of the world's most famous cities.

    11 – The Obsessive and Flying Trash

    11 – The Obsessive and Flying Trash

    Hi, there. This episode is Part Two of a longer discussion that began in Episode 10. If you want to listen in order, go to Episode 10 first and then come back.







    In this episode, we discuss a certain obsessive film director and the movie he never made, and we talk about junk floating in space and how the international community tries to deal with it.







    Again, as in the previous episode, we recorded this in 2018, so some of the dates are a year old as of this posting. We will have BRAND NEW CONTENT up in a short time.

    09 – So, What You’re Saying Is

    In this episode, Mandy talks about Earth Day, she confront the truth about meteors, and she hits us with crazy facts about calcium. Kevin scares us about black holes, he talks about the origin of the word "Luddite," and tells us about a creepy, but fascinating art book.



    For the Wikipedia on EarthDay click here.



    The SCARY MORN1415 video called "Black Hole Comparison" is well worth the four minutes. See it on the largest screen you can find.



    Here is a Meteor Shower Calendar for 2018.
