Skepticism 101: We talk about how a helmet and a bullet-riddled plane perfectly demonstrates survivor bias. It’s nice to keep your skeptic toolkit up to date and remember all the fallacies you shouldn’t fall for.


I Can See Clearly Now: The largest space telescope in history is about to blow our minds. The James Webb Space Telescope will be 100 times as powerful as the Hubble. 7.8 feet to 21.3 feet, the mirror of the James Webb Telescope has more than six times the collecting area as Hubble. So cool! What should we point it at first?


Science Fiction: First we chat about What If… Ultron Won to get it out of the way (it was a really good episode), then we get right into Foundation. We talk about the show, the main plot (with minor spoilers for the first episode) and our thoughts. We all pretty much loved it. Ben then takes the wheel and we talk about the Babylon 5 reboot, Farscape, and Masters of the Universe: Revelation. It’s crazy but it’s good.
