    74: The Science of Christmas

    Rob and Joseph wax eloquent and speculative on various aspects of the Christmas story. Have you ever wondered who the Magi were, where they came from, and what was the nature of that star that they saw? Fear no, they go there. What about the genetics of Jesus? Yeah, they speculate about that also, hopefully without getting into too much heretical hot water. Finally, they discuss the physics of Santa Claus, attempting to cast doubt on that aged story, but then they bring in the big guns: four physicists who defend the Santa story using science…or did they?

Binge-Listening Material For Science Noobs

Equinox has really re-ignited my interest in the sciences! If only I lived at the edge of the universe; then I could listen to more episodes sooner.

Buckle your restraint mechanisms for nonstop free-ranged conversations between science enthusiasts nerding out hardcore about genetics, physics, astronomy, history of science, archaeology, data pushing the limits of modern science, and more!
