Episode 330: Star Peace

This episode contains: We start out ready for 2021. Ben and kid have been reading Legend of Korra comics. Steven bought a 3D Printer.

Art is in the Eye of the Microbiological Organism: Leonardo da Vinci’s drawings have unique microbiomes, study finds. Hairs can be a marker for where you are. We have a nice conversation of art, it’s purpose and how much Ben loves it.


Biological Imperative: Is it better to give than receive? Children who experienced compassionate parenting were more generous than peers. We don’t add much to this one, besides Ben thinking he’s a bad dad. (He’s not.)


Science Fiction: We talk about the Star Trek Discovery episode Terra Firma part 2, and our varied opinions on how it all turned out. We talk a bit about Harlan Ellison and The City on the Edge of Forever. We talk on the season 2 finale of The Mandalorian. We talk about *that* reveal and where we think the show will go in a season 3. We also get excited for The Book of Boba Fett.

One last question: Who is your Spider-Man? Tobey Andrew or Tom?
