Hello Internet
« on: August 26, 2015, 09:05:01 AM »
Any listeners of Hello internet?

http://www.hellointernet.fm/

I find this to be one of my favorite podcasts each week. It's a conversation podcast between Brady Haran of Numberphile fame and GCP Grey of GCPGrey fame. There is such a dichotomy between these two that the podcast is very entertaining, and at first I was, Oh, man it's a bother to listen for 2 hours to random stuff, but in the end I ended up hearing everything. I think this is the Seinfield of podcasts.

This week, they were talking about what professions hear their podcasts during their work (if allowed), and a lady named Emily said she listened and worked on Cassini, and I'm like, oh, the only Emily I know in the Cassini project is Emily Lakdawalla. And I thought that was curious.

Anyways, they talk about various interesting topics and you can see how they (Especially GCPGrey) use critical thinking in their discussion.

I'll give it a try on your suggestion.

If you haven't checked out CGPGrey, you should. Rare videos through, but worth it.
