Episode 30: Alice Stuart and the Value of Music
Restoring an old episode that I took down earlier over copyright concerns. Alice was so tickled that I had her music on the show, had to bring it back. What great music!
Episode 40: Lisa Arrington
This lady is what the Should Be Famous Podcast was born for. Chances are you’ve never heard of her, but, to me at least, she’s amazing. Enjoy!
For your reference this music is on a CD entitled Farewell to Nauvoo, by Fiddlesticks! with Lisa Arrington.

Episode 38: GRAVITY IS CRACKED
You don’t know how big this is.
Folks, after years of study, I can finally tell you exactly why gravity and acceleration are one and the same thing, a hunch I’ve had this whole time but haven’t been able to quite explain, until now. Well, this was recorded in 2015, but anyway…
The thing is, there is no gravity. Gravity is just acceleration, caused by the curve in space-time that mass “creates” and the fact that we are being interrupted from our natural path of free fall (or geodesic, Einstein’s term), by the surface of the earth.
Einstein had it right, and it’s a little puzzling why his theory of gravity hasn’t been universally accepted and others dumped, even though his explains most perfectly the phenomena we experience. Really puzzling. But I think it has to do with the difficulty of wrapping one’s mind around the difference between acceleration as a deviation from a straight, Euclidian line (one that doesn’t exist in the real world, but one we keep imagining), and acceleration as a deviation from the REAL straight line in space-time, which is “curved”–the natural path of free fall, or geodesic.
I’m telling you this is important!
Episode 37: Banjo and Kid Behavior Secret
Tune in for the secret to evoking angel behavior from your children, really! I know you don’t believe me but you’ll see. Also a little banjo and tummy thumping. Enjoy!
Episode 36: How Airplanes REALLY Fly
No, this is not really about the cute graphic I put on the blog, it’s about correcting an unfortunate misguided explanation for how airplanes fly that seems to have been repeated over and over through the years. That explanation is that it all comes down to Bernoulli’s principle, where if a fluid (like air) travels faster over one side of a surface (like the curved top of a wing), the pressure on that surface will be decreased as compared to, say, the bottom… oh never mind, you can just listen. You’re welcome for setting things straight and hope you enjoy that and the music!
