I Just Don't See The Big Deal
Episode 21

Snap Crackle Pop Science, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Sam Harris Smarm

Alexander von Sternberg published on

After a month of some significant changes, the boys have a brand-spankin' new episode of the podcast, the first of two recorded during von Sternberg's sojourn back to the Twin Cities. During their first recording jaunt (which took three attempts overall), von Sternberg tries to exorcise his racist demons by excoriating the mass-beloved Neil deGrasse Tyson and his push for bare enthusiasm for science without any of the follow-through. Burgess just wants to blow Tyson or something (but manages to sneak in a good counterpoint or five). The debate was heated! Laughs were had! Enjoy the decent audio quality!

p.s. You might also notice the new theme song and outro piece. That's right, the guys have finally ditched exploiting licensed music! Thanks to Creative Commons and the talents of these fine artists for allowing the use of their music:

"Tainted Cloth" by Oelek, "The Cannery" by Kevin MacLeod, "Wagon Wheel" by Kevin MacLeod, and "The Troll of the Mountain Swing" by Underscore Orkestra.
