EP. 1 — Multiple Personality Disorder

We’d like to invite you and your multiple personalities to the first episode of Professor Blastoff! Each week Tig, David, and Kyle will discuss science, philosophy, and the humanities from the abandoned basement of Professor R.L. Blastoff PhD. We begin this week with a discussion on the multiplicity of self. How many facets does the self contain? Where is the line for mental instability? How important is self awareness? What is the difference between Multiple Personalities Disorder and Schizophrenia? How does one pronounce “compartmentalize” correctly? For thoughtful, yet hilarious, answers to these questions and more, join us for our maiden voyage!

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.
