So today’s topic is Superconductors. You know. those cold things that float if you put them down on a magnet. How do they work?

guess who is back?! it’s our Pal, the duke of the internet: RYAN NORTH!!! You know what’s new with him? it’s the ADVENTURE TIME COMIC BOOK!


In other newsy news. we now have a FORUM! a place where we can all hang out and talk about physics and also my plans for world domination. click HERE to go there.

Also, we have a Store. I’m not going to lie, this podcast doesn’t cost all that much per month. but it does cost something. So I’ve started selling RAD T-Shirts (thanks, chelsea anderson!). If you wear them around, maybe people ask why you look so smart and then you can tell them about my titanium physicists.
