S2E5: Science, Science, Science!

In episode 5, we brought three of our contributors back to talk about some of their favorite topics.

With Jordan, we chatted about the new movie The Martian directed by Ridley Scott and starring Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain (among many other stellar stars). Have you seen it yet? What did you think? Let us know and we'll share your reviews in our inbox section of the next episode!

We continued the aliens theme in our conversation with Will. He brought us up to speed on the possibility of alien life both on Mars and elsewhere in the universe. If you want to learn more about the Kepler telescope's findings, start with this and this. Do you think there is alien life out there? Email, tweet at, or Facebook us to share your opinions on extraterrestrials. 

With Joshua, we discussed the nature and ethics of nootropics. If you're interested in reading more about nootropics, here are a few resources for you to check out:

What do you think about nootropics? Are there ethical and non-ethical ways to use them? Should we experiment with them at all?

Hope you enjoyed Episode 5! We'll be back next week with Episode 6.
