Emails: Field-Adjacent Correspondent Matt Dixon responds to our requests for data verification. He mails us about pigeons used in missiles, and why Microsoft Excel has a limit to the number of rows a file can hold. Thank you Matt!

Science Fiction: We talk about the goof in last weeks episode and that leads to some spoilers for Quantum Leap. Ben talks more about the Oculus Quest 2 and the games he’s playing: EchoVR, Half Life: Alyx and some stuff from SideQuest. Ben then talks at Steven about the first episode of the third season of Star Trek Discovery. Spoilers ahead.
