Tim Sway is our guest this week! Connecticut in tha house!
We get the juicy details from Tim about how he ended up making "The SqWAYre," his super cool measuring and marking tool. We also talk about the mighty power of high school art teachers (Thank you art teachers!).
It took Rob only four months to go from swearing he would never do something to doing it twice in one week. Don't look to Rob for guidance about self-control.
Tim lets fly but in a peaceful way. Except for those birds he's flipping. Those are pretty angsty.
Taylor dives into the Internet of Energy Wasting Things.
This is our 30th episode! Every 10 episodes we invite all of our previous guests to call in and let us know what they're up to so we're excited to share some of those with you! So be listening for those around the 55 minute mark.

Ranjit Bhatnagar is our guest this week! Brooklyn in the house! We talk about plastic made from blood (hemacite!), seeing faces in things (pareidolia! :-) ), the Church of the SubGenius, redaction, instrument making, and beaver pelts as currency.
Rob tests the flight characteristics of paper and plastic. Ranjit isn't the Smiley Face killer... well... probably isn't. Taylor's project is fire (and electricity)!
Mad props to The KLF. They burned a million quid. We didn't do that. Also, check our all our links. Holy cow!
