Episode 218 - Wrong in Space
00:00:00 - Turns out our excitement of the detection of really old gravity waves was a bit premature, mostly because it didn't exactly happen. Ben explains. A duck appears. The next segment begins.
00:22:36 - Ryan kicks things off by going with a Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger from his local brewery Altitude (but don't expect to hear the song). Charlie complements with another bold IPA in the form of a Boot Toss from his local brewery Wander Brewing. Ben has a drink that has all the ingredients of beer, but isn't somehow.
00:28:47 - Tom from North Carolina calls in to ask how we can know that some water is older than the solar system? Because if water has memory than the homeopaths we wright and he just can't abide that. We explain the science, and assure everyone that homeopathy remains nonsense.
00:55:53 - PaleoPOWs are a lot like old water; probably fine but you can't help but feeling it's just off somehow. Ryan snuck his in the previous segment so Charlie charges ahead thanking Tom V. from the Netherlands who started a recurring donation. Thanks, Tom! And Ben fields a classic physics question from Michael about dropped objects in a vacuum.
