The Weekly Geek
Greetings, humans! I've been experimenting with which day is best to post TWG. And since this site hasn't quite blown up yet, I figure it's a good time to shift some things around. With that in mind, here's a short list of everything I'm geeking out about this week.
Book I'm reading: Physics of the Future: How Science Will Shape Human Destiny and Our Daily Lives by the Year 2100 by Michio Kaku. I've been on a deep dive into the cosmology and physics lately, doing research for the Bobby Robot series. Michio Kaku is a theoretical physicist and futurist, and does a good job of explaining what the future might be like. Bobby's never been a hard sci-fi novel, but I do like the background of the story to be rooted in actual science. Gotta bend some of the predictions for the purpose of the story, but it helps to be able to envision how our present technology might play out far in the future, which is the setting of the story.
Podcast episodes I've been obsessing about: Last week, I mentioned Joe Rogan's interview with Brian Cox. After listening to the whole episode, I've become a big fan of the physicist and intend to listen to his radio show The Infinite Monkey Cage. If you even remotely love space, check this guy out.
Short list this week! Will probably post more space stuff next week, so be prepared!
