Season 3 - Episode 2


A Party Trick Know to the Ancient Greeks

Show Opening

"My Sound Levels seams to be Good," is how Walther starts the episode tempting fate and foreshadowing the audio problems to come. If only he would learn the phrase 'inshallah' he would send less of his time being shown his hubris.

This is the second time they have tried to recoded the show, given Walther the time lag between last recording and Walther redoing his desk set up, as said above, things do not go 100% with out issues.

Main Show

Who knows how Magnets work?

Magnetism and other Delights

We get to the topic that Jason wanted to know about, what the deal is about static electricity and electromagnetic fields. It takes Walther a while to get past the history of atomic theory, but eventually gets around to contradicting himself and answering Jason's question.

  • Electricity and magnetism.
    • Atomic Theory
    • Discovery of the Electron -> 1897
    • Discovery of the Nucleus -> 1911
    • Discovery of the Proton -> 1917
    • Discovery of the Neutron -> 1932
    • Plum Pudding Model of the Atom


Gravity governs the scale of big, but in the early solar system, small dust particles are as attracted to clump up by static charge as they are by gravitational attraction. How could you demonstrated this in a high school classroom setting?

"He Still Talking About Magnets"

Jason, Gets to his Point

Back to talking about Accretion and how to demo it. Alos what is the correct term to call this, and how to use proper academic vocabulary.


Reformation Day

It's Oct. 31 so it is time to nail a list to the public bulletin board, so twitter. Walther's Wife must correct him when he is wrong; plus the there are many Mel Broke references.


Because Walther is a good podcasting boy, he is really into Craft and tries to get Jason to buy in and try it out.
