This episode contains: We talk about how crazy of a weep we’ve been having. Ben’s son broke his arm, Steven went to a high school reunion and for some reason we’re still teaching cursive writing in schools.
That is a Spicy Meatball: Humans just generated nuclear energy akin to a star. What can humanity accomplish with an abundance of laser beams and tiny hydrogen fuel pellets? Almost ignition. Also, the lab that did this was in Star Trek Into Darkness, so that’s cool I guess.
Perpetual Something: Cancer patients’ own cells used in 3D printed tumours to test treatments. Some current science feels like future science to Steven. Bioprinting? Wow.
Science Fiction: Before we talk science we take a detour into screen shot tools, website problems, and technical stuff that Steven barely understands. Ben is the smart one? Outstanding. We have a chat about a listener response (hi Renee!), and then get into the Lower Decks talk. Ben wants a Lieutenant Kayshon puppet. Steven and Ben then review episode 2 of What If…?. What if T’Challa became a Star Lord? We love it, such a cool show. Steven also responds a bit to the latest Eternals trailer.

Well now I seem like a stalker! And yet, here I am.
You may not have danced at the reunion but you learned the Ooncha Ooncha dance of my clan ha! It was so good to see you all!
I am 100% on board with Patrick Stewart/Prof. X. Always and forever. Did you know that in ’95 Wizard magazine “cast” him as Charles Zavier? Devon might remember that, I have memories of he and I and Giovanni and Micah going through those and wishing for an Xmen movie! They also said Glenn Danzig should be Wolverine. I’m pretty sure Prof. X was the only one they got right. The rest were very 90’s actors.
Also, Chadwick Boseman is supposed to be in quite a few of the What If episodes, hooray!

I’m embarrassed by my auto-correct changing Xavier to zavier. What is a Zavier?
