Talking Model 3 With Ben Sullins of Teslanomics

I recently traveled to Palm Springs and got a chance to hang out with Ben Sullins, who brought his Model 3 with him – and I got a chance to drive it!

Ben’s channel, Teslanomics, talks about Tesla from a data science standpoint. It’s a great source of Tesla news that cuts through all the hype. Find his channel here:

Rocket Lab CEO Peter Beck on His Mission To Transform Space As We Know It

On the YouTube channel today, I am releasing an often-requested video on Rocket Lab, the New Zealand private launch company that’s focusing on small, disposable rockets to serve the growing cubsat and micro satellite industry. And for the video, CEO Peter Beck was kind enough to spend some time talking with me about his company, his philosophy, and some of the engineering challenges to reaching space.

The Science of Climate Change Denial with John Cook of Skeptical Science

John Cook founded the website skepticalscience.com, where he has compiled a list of the most repeated climate change denial arguments and shows the science behind the myths. Along the way, he gained a PhD in Psychology and studies why people refuse to believe scientific truths.

What’s The Deal With Bitcoin? (Featuring Cooper Carr of the Cine Pile Podcast)

I covered Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, and blockchain technology in previous videos, and one of the people who helped me research those videos was my good friend Cooper Carr.

Cooper runs his own podcast called the Cine Pile Podcast, where he and a couple of friends have “down to Earth discussions about films that matter”. I actually appeared on their podcast a while back, so you know it’s gotta be good.

But Cooper has been all about Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies for years now, so when I was researching for my video, he was one of the first people I talked to.

In this podcast, Cooper joins me to talk in depth about how he got into Bitcoin and crypto, what’s changed over the last few years and how this new paradigm is going to change in the future. It’s a fun conversation that touches on all kinds of tangents, so I hope you enjoy it.

All About The Falcon Heavy with Tim Dodd The Everyday Astronaut

I spoke with Tim Dodd, who runs the YouTube channel Everyday Astronaut, specifically about the Falcon Heavy for my video on that subject, but we got into all kinds of topics from spaceflight to what inspired us as kids, to the danger of trolls and flat-earthers and the importance of tapping into the wonder that science brings us.

I really enjoyed talking with him, if you haven’t checked out his channel, you can find it at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6uKrU_WqJ1R2HMTY3LIx5Q/featured
