Episode 25: The No Bear Theorem with Anne Casselman

Posted Nov 12, 2012 by bn

Well, after the time I took off to write about Cthulhu, I decided to call this episode the start of season 2. It’s been about a year since our first episode was recorded, after all. I made a new intro, too.

After we recorded this episode, jocelyn and dave and I had a bear drawing contest, and jocelyn won. Hey Everyone, it’s MEATBALLS!

Today’s topic is lovely. We talk about throwing crap into black holes, one of my favourite topics because I don’t need to do any prep. Also because I love black holes.

Anyway, today our guest is Anne Casselman, the science writer! we are excited to have her on. When I suggested the topic, she said “… And answer the question that keeps me up at night? Yes please! ”

So this week we’re throwing bears at black holes.

Listen through past the end. we talk about a lot of different black hole things after the credits including the no hair theorem, black hole evaporation and uh… what to name the bear.
