Episode 17: See Spot Sun with David Malki!

Posted Jun 9, 2012 by bn

So. Why does the sun have spots? Is It Acne? How are they related to the giant coronal mass ejections that whip out of the sun on occasion?

And Magnetic fields? how do they work?

Today, we’re going to go through all this and more with David Malki! the author of Wondermark, editor of the machine of death, and host of the Tweet Me Harder Podcast. This show got pretty silly, so I cut a lot of funny conversation into the appendix in order to maintain the 30ish minute timelimit between the songs. If you have any particular opinions on my timelimit, or my practice of cutting up the conversation, please send me an email. I’m thinking about how I could improve the show in the future.
