ASTC and Derek from Veritasium


Today’s show is a powerhouse of brilliant science people. Guest host Lamont Craven and Ralph travel to Toronto for the ASTC (Association of Science and Technology Centers) Conference, meeting so many awesome science center folks and talking about the cool stuff they’re up to. Then, we have an interview with the inimitable Derek Muller of Veritasium featuring a deep dive into aerogels and other cool stuff. Finally, we head back to the conference for science questions with special guests.
