    Ep. 108 Desert Planet 101: Dealing w/ Sandworms

    This episode comes out on Thanksgiving, and I can’t help but wonder what the holiday would be like if the pilgrims landed on an America that was one giant desert.  Would we spend it eating sandworm and mashed cactus?  What would pumpkin pie taste like if it was seasoned with the mind-altering spice found on […]

These guys are brilliant!

As a longtime fan of Dr. Michael Dennin, the steady voice of reason from Ancient Aliens, I was excited to find this podcast where Dennin shows his fun loving side and excitement about science topics. Physics Phenom Dennin is joined by Enigmatic Engineer Ben Seipser and Analytic Mastermind Dan Glenn in this thought-provoking but hilarious podcast that provides observations on various pop culture topics. Be warned: Don’t listen to these National Treasures while attempting to ingest fluids. May induce projectile spewing. Love the Brain Trust!
