Ms. Sandford would like to point out that in the heat of the moment, she said that the moon is “turning” when she really should have said, “orbiting (the Earth).” Yes, the moon turns, but not in the way we usually think of a body turning: Due to the way the moon is “tidally locked” with the Earth, it rotates only once per orbit, which means it’s always facing us. Which is why it has a dark side, and we can always see the “Man in the Moon”. Pretty cool.
This episode, Aric and Levi are joined by Maggie Ryan Sanford to discuss science at its most fundamental level. Before they can explore more difficult topics like physics and biology, the basics of what science is and is not need to be established. Tides, dolphins, and how not to be a foley artist are also explored.
Seth Flagg and Aric chat about everything from student teaching to finding your own doppelgänger. But wait, there’s more! Bad night club ideas, how to be polite to artists, getting out to support your friends, gift exchanges, fabric stores, Warhammer, and much much more.
From a discussion symbolism and character in movies like Gravity and Jurassic Park to plumbing the depths of fear and self doubt.
Candiru. That’s the only word you need to know for this Better Strangers podcast with Bruce Worden.
