Alex Berg - Physics and Cosmology

Buckle up, folks. We dive deep early and then go even deeper on the topic of PHYSICS, TIME, MULTIVERSES, and other topics of Cosmology. Alex Berg (former UCB artistic director, Convoy) briefly describes his lifelong passion for physics and then proceeds to simply discuss physics. We start with Newton, crush through Einstein and proceed into theories of alternate dimensions, pre-Big Bang history and tesseracts. Yep. Science-phobes should fear not: there is no math in this episode. Also Anthony discusses Steve Martin's late-career shift into bluegrass, and Will discusses the real-life inspiration for Professory Moriarity.
