Can I harvest energy from all those static-electricity shocks I get in the winter? With a little help from his co-host Corey S. Powell, field experts, and special celebrity guests, Bill will answer those questions and convince you that science rules!

RYAN KLEIN-Apparently you don't know much about academia? He could be a nurse or have his degree in anthropology and he'd have Bachelor of Science degree. His is in engineering, which is also rewarded with a B. S. degree. I studied history, so mine is a Bachelor of Arts degree. Just because you see the word Science, doesn't mean you're looking at a SCIENTIST! Next you'll be telling me someone with a bachelors degree in Political Science is a SCIENTIST 😂😁🤗 P. S. -A Bachelor's or even Master's degree doesn't make you a Scientist anyway, even if it were a science degree, you need a Ph. D. to be called a scientist. Just like it requires a Ph. D. in history to be called an Historian. Or an M. D. to be called a Medical Doctor. Doctorate, post-graduate, degrees are required to be considered an expert in any field..... Baccalaureate degrees are UNDER -graduate degrees, and Bill's isn't in Meteorology, Climateology, or any related field....... So he's just a boob giving his UNeducated Opinion. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez comes to mind for me🙃 You're welcome, and have a pleasant day 😎

Mike Christopher So that means you are an artist giving a Uneducated opinion. The Science council's own definition of scientist: A scientist is someone who systematically gathers and uses research and evidence, making a hypothesis and testing it, to gain and share understanding and knowledge. A scientist can be further defined by: how they go about this, for instance by use of statistics (Statisticians) or data (Data scientists) what they’re seeking understanding of, for instance the elements in the universe (Chemists, Geologists etc), or the stars in the sky (Astronomers) where they apply their science, for instance in the food industry (Food Scientist) However all scientists are united by their relentless curiosity and systematic approach to assuaging it. ........... Ok I'm back. where does it say that you have to have a Ph.D. I even looked it up in the dictionary and by definition it does not have to do with any educational certificate.

do we think she selected cat as the animal she would be because of the earlier mention of cats by the caller and potentially the earlier cat sounds. subconscious suggestion?

Starting to really suck. Really can do without Bill’s running commentary. It distracts and is just off rhythm

kind of a boring episode. Didn't learn anything new, not sure if the guest isn't actually an expert, or just got asked the wrong questions. Either way felt like I was listening to a couple of guys with high school level understanding of heredity talk. I realize this show is in its early days hope you can get better guests.

there's a fundamental misunderstanding of how metformin works in the discussion on this episode. metformin works as a glucophage which then decreases the likelihood of a glycotoxic environment from forming and thus decreasing excitotoxic and stress environs systemically.

your podcast 📡is amazingly good, alive and creative. I love it so much. by the way, is it possible to consider human nature & human mind more? since we understand world and science by our minds it's important for me to know the Knower itself.
