00:00:00 - Darwin, whom we all know and love for his contributions to biology, was also a geologist of note in his day, thereby doubly securing his legacy as one excellent gentleman scientist. 00:18:00 - Gentlemen scientists are also known to enjoy drinks. Ryan cuts everyone off to talk about his Glacier Ale from Red Lodge Ales. Jacob has a Red Shoulder RyePA brewed by a listener/co-worker. And Patrick has the final in his Thunderhead series of beers given to him by Ryan. Speaking of trilogies...

00:26:28 - While Patrick remains skeptical of the idea of The Cornetto Trilogy, the guys generally agree that the preview of The World's End paints a rosy picture in this week's Trailer Trash Talk!

00:37:46 - Terrible headlines aside, io9 provides a cool story about using self-replicating probes for galactic exploration based on a recent study which determined that the galaxy could be fully explored with this method in a mere 10 million years!

00:57:48 In this week's PaleoPOW the Summer of Love wraps up with our final request for your Time & Talent. We want YOU to help US and here are some things that could be quite handy: things that we could use help with

Ryan reads a new iTunes review from BrandoBourassa. And Jacob ends it all with an e-mail from materials scientist Cameron K. about being inspired to start his own podcast. Good luck, Cameron!
