Rita Blaik is our guest this week! Los Angeles in tha house!
We kick things off with some discussion on design vs art and gender diversity in science. Then we dive into the projects!
Taylor the Chef cooked up some supermax treats to get your mouth watering on some nutraloaf! And he gets dinged in the cheek by a bullet fragment that can't be stopped.
Rita Blaik drops the cryo-electron microscopy science on us! And she shares the wonderful curiosities of Ernst Haeckel and Robert Hooke.
Rob tries to up the fidelity and weirdness on the video he made last week. And he talks about skateboarding... again...

Apologies for a few audio quality nuances. It took some psychic surgery to get around some of Rob's microphone problems.

Kelly Marie Martin is our guest this week! Greetings Kelly! Los Angeles in tha house!
"Click training" is our challenge this episode! We talk about occult rocketry, racist christian cults, and Krazy Kat's gender fluidity. We also talk indie comics we have loved and bullets frozen in time. Kelly also shares her love for "My Favorite Thing is Monsters," the rewards of painting and the pleasures and struggles of being a musician.
Taylor creates a really cool chunky talisman for staying thoughtful about his eating habits. Kelly creates a metronomic, spacey, spooky and fun song you can hear on the podcast! Rob finally mails a gift he's been meaning to send for 9 years (That's just ridiculous.) and asks the bees to keep him on track.
Rob apologizes for his audio quality on this episode. Out technology demons! OUT! A shout out to our previous guests Ranjit Bhatnagar, Nick Bontrager, Sara Schnadt and Federico Tobon who are mentioned in this episode!
