17 Jul Dr. Derek Muller
At the top of the podcast, the guys chat a little about their Vegas weekend, and Adam talks about how a confusing rental car conversation with someone who didn’t speak great English. Adam also rants about his kids eating messy without napkins and Natalia’s thoughts on smoking, and the guys take a look at the results of a listener poll. After that, the guys talk to fans about locker room etiquette, tennis, and Rich Man Poor Man. Before the break, Adam talks about people not appreciating things when they get them for free.
Dr. Derek Muller is in studio next, and Adam compliments him on his fascinating ‘Veritasium’ YouTube channel. The guys talk more about surprising chemistry, Dr. Muller’s background, and misconceptions about climate change. Other topics of discussion include measuring methane release from cows, the pros and cons of switching to nuclear energy, and redefining what a kilogram is. In the last part of the show, Gina asks Dr. Muller about spending time in ‘The Quietest Room’, and reads news stories about OJ Simpson’s upcoming televised parole hearing, updates on the Trump family’s Russia scandal, and Shia Labeouf’s latest drunken antics.
