EP. 16 — Linguistics

You might call this episode verbose, perhaps even bombastic. You might find yourself wayward in the expanse of grammar and syntax. We’re talking about talking this week on Professor Blastoff and our guest is our old friend from the Evolution episode, Dr. Martin Cohen. Learn what distinguishes “meaningful utterances” and how language has evolved through the course of human history. Enjoy, dig in, relish, savor, and luxuriate in it!

EP. 217 — Goodbye

Grab your tissues because it’s a sad day in the hatch today. Tig, Kyle, and David are back together one last time to discuss Tig’s engagement party and then weigh in on their decision to end the podcast. The gang reminisces on their favorite bits, answers fan questions, and talks about future plans. Welp, that’s been podcast.

Kyle and David are Tig-less this week in a chat with a friend of the show from North Carolina Jeff McInnis who has a Ph.D in Neuroscience, about controlling the brain with light.
