About this Episode

We welcome materials engineer Ian Doran as our first guest! Ian extolls the awesomeness of giant steam turbines and lost wax casting. He and Taylor share a few of their teenage adventures in idiocy and science. (Note: Don't put gasoline in a double boiler. Really... Don't do that.) Taylor explains knucklebones as an ancient method of random number generation and combines the old-school with the new-school. Ian brings the icosahedral heat! He tackled the bevel math that scared off Rob and cast some wicked spells on different salvaged materials. Rob thinks about rolling dice and... the dice roll. The Objet printer can give you a tattoo while doing a backflip. The Grr-ripper will help you keep your fingers on your hand. The step bit can make quite a hole. We have our first Patreon patron! Thank you Kelly! And we have our first listener feedback email! Thank you Rich!
