In this episode Christine and yours truly, the Supreme Irreverend Doctor Randy Tyson are joined by superstar cosmologist Lawrence Krauss. Lawrence is director of the Origins Project at Arizona State University in Phoenix. He’s also involved with the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ Doomsday Clock, recently set back to 2 and a half minutes to midnight. In his quest to communicate science to the laity, he has published a number of books including The Physics of Star Trek, A Universe from Nothing and on Tuesday next week The Greatest Story Ever Told – So Far, which attempts to answer the question “Why are we here?”.
In this episode, join Kris, Twyla and yours truly, the Supreme Irreverend Doctor Randy, as we talk about the Trumpocalypse and the various levels of hysteria which has gone on in the aftermath. Before we get to that, however, we have a look at a new Charter of Rights and Freedoms court challenge in BC as Port Alberni public school students were made to take part in a First Nations “smudging ceremony”; Bill C-16, which adds requirements to federal human rights legislation that individuals be addressed by their preferred gender pronoun, is under protest by U of Toronto professor Jordan Peterson; and Unionen, Sweden’s largest union, has created a hotline for women whenever they feel mansplained to.
