Episode 3.02: YTCracker
In this episode of MC Hawking's Podcore Nerdcast, Ken, Len, Cassie and special guest YTCracker talk about the fact that the Alphabet Song (ABCs), Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, and Baa Baa Black Sheep are all the same tune, but Baa Baa Black Sheep in particular is kind of a messed up song. Cassie brings the latest in Dino News: glittery feathers found on 120 million-year-old flying dinosaur, a member of the enantiornithines group which we're now calling the tinyshinysaur. We make YT tell us about the time he for reals hacked NASA when he was a wee lad of seventeen, which leads him to explain Frédéric Bastiat's Parable of the Broken Window. On Dropping Science, Len talks about scientists in China who plan to use CRISPR to hack human DNA in an attempt to fight cancer. Also, there's a brand of vape juice called Nerdcore. MC Hawking dials in to the podcast to catch up with the gang. In Everybody Wants to Rule the World, YT proposes making computer security education compulsory, and the gang concurs. We talk about computers, AI, and augmented reality for a while. YT doesn't really have anything in particular to plug right now, but you should follow him on Twitter at @realytcracker, and check him out on BandCamp. MC Hawking dials in again to remind YT about the track they're recording together. For Jame's Cocktail Corner, we drank Fader-Aid, a drink suggested by int eighty of Dual Core during our last episode.
