Original release date: Dec.21, 2013

This time around we had a real scientist on, Randy Tyson from Calgary skyped in with Mike, Rene and me to talk about everything from NOMA to climate change to Rush Limbaugh.

Edit:I'm not proud of some aspects of this episode. I certainly had some problematic ideas back then. Hopefully anyone who listens this far back will keep with us and check out newer episodes for evidence of our podcast evolution. This was our first episode in a studio though and we realized pretty quickly that we could never go back to doing things the way we were before.~Cory
