A Digestible Encyclopedia of the Most Exciting Parts of Physics
Few podcasts offer the tremendous opportunity to learn about something so fundamental to this universe yet also so hidden to most people. Dan Hooper and Shalma Wegsman offer a dynamic approach to learning some of the most interesting and mysterious physics concepts. What sets them apart is a clear podcast model that optimizes both interest and educational value. While Dan Hooper’s theoretical physics background provides a wealth of knowledge about black holes, quantum physics, and string theory, Shalma Wegsman has a unique ability to make the deepest insights into the universe more accessible to those without a physics background. If you didn’t fully grasp what Hooper is getting at, Wegsman is often right there to summarize his point in words a bit more palatable. Wegsman is also able to synthesize points via poignant questions that guide the discussion to interesting…event horizons. This podcast is an absolute gem. Our society is a better place because of it. Many thanks to you both for your continued efforts.
