Episode 356: It’s A Pillow Cuddle

This episode contains: We recorded early because of the 4th of July! We talk birthdays, board games and BBQs.

Homo what?!: ‘Dragon man’ fossil may replace Neanderthals as our closest relative. Homo longi may have been adapted for harsh environments, allowing them to disperse throughout Asia. Somehow a comic book taught Steven about Neanderthals, but not really.


What’s cooler and being cool?: Physicists bring human-scale object to near standstill, reaching a quantum state. How still is still? On the quantum level, nothing is still. We talk about how this experiment even worked, and question it’s dubious math. Still cool though.


Science Fiction: LOKI. LOKI. LOKI. We talk about episodes 2-4, The Variant, Lamentis, and The Nexus Event. We discuss, in a non-violent way, whether or not there is a multiverse in the MCU. We question the intent of the TVA, and what happens when Loki stops being a Loki. We also talk about the first two episodes of the 5th season of Rick and Morty! Super awesome episodes, but we are still bummed that there’s not an easy streaming way to watch it. We talk about and look forward to the unholy union of Dan Harmon and Nathan Pyle. Ben watched Infinite and gives an amazing synopsis that is punctuated with his not-so-amazing review.
