I'm coming out of the lurking depths. w00t.
Hey, guys, I've been listening to this podcast since Scott posted something about it on his blog. I was looking at a friend's AIM profile and he linked to his own website. That website linked to www.Apreche.net. At that time, Scott had posted his post about this podcast. I quickly downloaded the first episode I saw and loved it.
Ok, on to what I think of the podcast. Now, I don't have an iPod, so I'm not very familiar with podcasts other than this one. I loved your episode about Linux (Window managers, I believe it was called), being a recent Linux convert myself. However, I never got into Anime and still haven't, so I listened to the beginning of those pocasts then just turned it off and did other stuff. Same thing with board games. However, that's not to say I wouldn't like them if I tried them. Wow, that sentence came out bad, lemme try that again. I might like them if I tried them. There.
Ok, I'm done for now.
Truely though Rym and Rubin should talk more about Biotech issues so Pete and I can mention when they say something stupid ^_^ like when I say I still use IE ^_^ haha.
Scojo, if you want a biotech episode come up with a topic for us to discuss. We tend to do podcasts based on what we know, what we like and what we are good at. A show where we just make educated guesses and hypotheses about stuff we know nothing about shouldn't be that exciting.
I do think the two of you should discuss the sciences a bit more, even though it's not exactly your area of expertise; you can discuss it from the standpoint of the intelligent layman, and you wouldn't have to get too detailed. ScoJo and I could jump on board for some more in-depth bio-type discussions.
haha. yea, I could see me foundering over scienctific words on a podcast that would be wonderful. haha. better to bring one of my borderline creationist friends up and interview them about it ^_^ haha. that would be comic gold.
Actually, if you can find someone that's not a total dumbass about it, we could have a good solid discussion about it.
I think what you've suggested is an impossibility.
I've met perhaps a handful of people in my life who say they believe the universe was created by God, but that organisms evolve in accordance with modern evolutionary theory, because they recognize that the two are not mutually exclusive.
These people are, however, incredibly rare. Most creationist are Pat Robertson or the like, and deserve only a sound beating.
that's two out of the whole world ^_^
On the content of the podcast, I listen to them all even when it's stuff I might be a little unfamiliar with because it's usually all very well explained, though I don't know whether that's intentional or whether I'm just about as ignorant as Scott and Rym in their respective areas-that-need-to-be-explained.
