Ep. 32 – Desert Island Song



Problems with episode 32 abound, from hosts having a really rough week to audio gremlins that insist on spreading snap, crackle, and pop through Jeff’s audio. Can we just skip to episode 33 and be done with this one already? Please??

This week the guys talk about what their “desert island song” is – and ask (beg) you, the listener, to write, tweet, or call in with yours so they can build a NBTA playlist and share it with the world.

They talk about the presidential candidate who’s coming out swinging in favor of the metric system (yay!). And the guys learn about the still-in-place “chicken tax”.

Jeff learns us (a little) about some pretty interesting stem cell research being done with hydrogels.

The guys talk about the new VirScan blood test that promises to tell you every virus you’ve ever had in your life for the low, low price of about $25.  Just wait until the hospitals get that test, it’ll suddenly cost $2,500 – mark our words!

If you’re over 40 and live in the UK, there’s a simple questionnaire you can answer that will tell your chances of dying in the next five years.

So all-in-all a pretty mediocre episode. Come back next week, they promise it’ll be better!
