Episode 29: CRISPR, Tesla Model S, Encyclopedia Brittanica

This week, in honor the Gene Summit, Tim and Tom talk about CRISPR-Cas9, and it’s implications for the future of our species. In the arts, Tim sings the praises of the Tesla Model S, and in history, the guys observe the anniversary of the first edition of the Encyclopedia Brittanica. All that and the magic numbers.

  1. Great show, guys; keep it up. Intelligent discourse is getting so hard to find. Tim, I am glad to hear that our dinner table arguments may have contributed at least a little to the passing of the flame.

    I, too, want a Tesla. Never underestimate the power of good design.

    1. Thanks for listening, Chris. If there’s ever a topic in the news that you’d like to hear us discuss, drop a line and let us know.

  2. Have you ever thought about creating an e-book or guest authoring on other websites? I have a blog based upon on the same information you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my subscribers would value your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an email.

  3. I recently began a blog page, and I used to be just thinking how people have promoted their blogs on the web to get more supporters so you not necessarily just typing to nothing at all out in the internet?. Oh yeah, and for my blog, I don’t really would like my friends to be my followers, unless they find it on their own. My blog page is about something that most of my friend’s aren’t really assist with. (Photography is the primary subject).

  4. Appreciating the time and effort you put into your blog and in depth information you offer. It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same unwanted rehashed material. Wonderful read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.
