Episode 165: Meat Vat Vegetarians

This episode contains: Devon watched the latest episode of Rick and Morty right before recording. Adult Swim only allowed people to watch the first couple episodes for free, now you need a cable subscription. Devon was in Portland for the weekend and still found a way to watch Game of Thrones. Also, Game of Thrones is flying by now.

That’s a Spicy Meatball!: Behind the hype of lab grown meat. Lab grown meat may help ease your conscience but could still have a big impact on the environment. We discuss whether lab grown meat scales up, what resources are used to grow meat, and current uncertainties. Also, Devon discusses his feeling about killing animals for food and how he wishes he had the will power to be vegetarian or even vegan. Then we talk about animal testing. And no science from Devon, so it’s on to Sci-Fi!


Sci-Fi: More Rick and Morty. We break down episode 4 of this season, Vindicators 3: The Return of Worldender. Devon then gives us his review of The Chronoliths by Robert Charles Wilson, the writer of the awesome Spin trilogy. It’s okay, about a 3 out of 5. Some fun ideas, but not great execution. The episodes of The Earth Collective written by Steven are now out!
