On this less special (because now it’s a regular thing instead of a surprise) mini episode of the Regret Labs podcast, Aric and Levi take a Canadian 9th grade test on biological diversity and share their answers and frustrations with you.
In the second episode of the Regret Labs podcast, hosts Aric McKeown and Levi Weinhagen speak with Matt Kuzma about physics. And Back to the Future 3. But mostly about physics. Particles of light, the inverse square law, and what your eyes and ears do with the waves that interact with them are all gone over with a wide tooth comb.
On this special mini episode of the Regret Labs podcast, Aric and Levi take a 9th grade science test and share their results. If you’d like to compare your results to theirs, you can take the same test at the Peel District School Board website.
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.
