French inventor made a trap to catch hornets to save his bees! Someone discovered that dogs have a heat sense detector! Social scientists inadvertently lied in a study about honesty! For the main discussion, Dr. Carter tells us about Ernst Haeckel’s diabolical fraud.
Joe and TJ record a podcast in the same room! And what do they talk about? Apple’s iPhone 13 event, of course. Did you know Apple loves California? Well they made sure you do with this event video. And TJ and Joe dive into that and everthing Apple talked about and released: new iPad, iPad Mini, Apple Watch Series 7, and the iPhones 13.
Joe and Rob talk about things that should never have been, scientific experiments and ideas that were evil or just egregiously wrong. They use four examples: The Tuskegee long-term syphilis experiments, lobotomy, electroshock therapy, and Nazi science (and how much of US technology is based upon it today). This might be a tough listen, but education is sometimes sobering.
What does Fiber internet, bluetooth car stereos, and ebooks have in common? They’re the topics TJ and Joe cover in this episode! Because TJ is (hopefully) getting fiber internet, Joe would like to connect to his older car via Bluetooth, and Joe likes reading ebooks. And don’t miss the post show discussion of MCU, Spider-man, Sam Raimi and more!
It’s one small step for podcasting and one giant leap for today’s Equinox podcast! Rob is crafting a chain mail shirt with his daughter, Rob is fascinated by a nuclear fusion milestone… But enough of that! Rob and Joseph review the 2019 Apollo 11 film and discuss the historical mission to the moon.
Dr Rob Carter shares a great number of reasons that Earth’s climate changes continually, leaving us to wonder which issues are genuine concerns and which would even lead to improvements in conditions. Learn about ice ages, global flooding, terraforming, sea levels, renewable energy, global warming, and more!
Walter Isaacson is at it again, and TJ and Joseph have thoughts. Like maybe Isaacson isn’t such a great writer? Just spitballing after his Steve Jobs biography. Many others agree! TJ is also back to using his Hackintosh as his full time personal computer, the Ekster MagSafe Card Holder is pretty disappointing, and the two have thoughts on audiobooks and book reading.
Strap in, we’ve got a lot of topics this episode: Automattic is buying more stuff, MORE STUFF! Apple is putting Intel processors in Macs still? Joseph likes the look of a paid alternative to Google Search called Neeva. TJ and Joseph reminisce about the good old days of Apple design. TJ is enjoying NetNewsWire. And the pair are trying to find a good MagSafe wallet — surely there’s something good out there? In the post show, TJ and Joseph discuss Black Widow and the Marvel Universe.
