Episode 357: Ghost of the Pandemic

This episode contains: We’ve got a full house and Devon is preparing his piano to move. Ben visits his office for the first time in 482 days and it’s unsettling.

Get outta my dreams…: Why do electric cars look the way they do? Because they can. We talk about the design constraints with electric vehicles, and how they don’t really have any. Then we talk about the Mustang Mach-E and frunks.

AAWWOO!!: Wolf packs don’t actually have alpha males and alpha females, the idea is based on a misunderstanding. We talk about an old study that people misinterpreted and won’t go away. We also talk about true wolf pack dynamics and mixed family dynamics. It’s wild.

Science Fiction: We have a chat about Black Widow. We talk about seeing it in a theater compared to home viewing. We also talk about why it took Marvel so long to make it, and if it’s even worth watching. We’ve all seen episode 5 of LOKI, “Journey Into Mystery” and we talk about the various easter eggs, Steven has to explain the Thanoscopter to Devon, and Ben once again doesn’t believe the multiverse is coming. Devon and Ben both watched The Tomorrow War on Amazon Prime and gives a synopsis, and a mini review. There are some spoilers, but it doesn’t seem worth watching anyway. Devon has watched the first season of Resident Alien, and gives a synopsis and recommends the show. It sounds great!
