Asking great questions

He’s a great interviewer asking interesting questions to smart people. Each episode I listen to has opened my mind a little more, and taught me a lot.

Sexual harassment still supported in physics

I’ve listened to many episodes. I appreciate Sean’s patient explanations. I won’t criticize his unconventional views on quantum physics because, as he points out, the fundamentals should always be questioned. What killed it for me was when I went back to listen to the original show intro. He tried to illustrate that people have differing perspectives. He could not have used a worse example: he pointed out how there are many women in physics who endure sexual harassment, and if they speak up, their careers can be ruined. He mentions how on the other side, the men accused stand to be demoted or otherwise inconvenienced. Then Sean goes on to say “There’s no wrong or right here, just differing perspectives”. He could have used one of countless scientific debates to illustrate his point. Why did he have to insult women by being so dismissive of such a tremendously significant human rights issue.

Just depends on the episode

Sean Carroll is always a sure bet. But I made the mistake of listening to episode 96 with Lina Nacib. I’m sure she is brilliant and accomplished but has the worst high pitch shrieking voice, also terrible at presenting, all over the place, she starts a sentence and jumps all over, really difficult to follow. Ruined the episode, even though dark matter is one of the most fascinating topic in physics. Her presentation is so distracting I had to stop and was prompted to write this review. Will have to skip this episode, it’s so abrasive.
Careful who you invite, Sean.
