TPDon't Worry!

Due to finals last week and studying for them the week before and spring break this week, we're too busy relaxing and playing videogames to bring any new shows at the moment. This doesn't mean we've stopped, no no no no no no! We're waiting until we can get back to our respective computers to begin recording again! We are also attending a lecture hosted by Brian Greene shortly and Stephen Hawking not too long afterwards.

TPD Podast Ep: 018
Click here to listen

Scott's going on a Lazy Binge again, so I've been designated as Official TPD Slave and forced to write up another blog.

This week features our Third Skypecast Foray, and this time we actually had quite a turnout! The topic of discussion was based on a popular theme from Science Fiction books: How would instantaneous travel affect society?

While the quality of the recording may not be top-notch, the content most assuredly is. A well-rounded discussion about how instantaneous travel would effect economic, political, military, societal, and various other facets of our world ensued, and most everyone came out of the discussion with a different perspective.
