There's a saying; you give a man information about black holes, he'll learn for a day. If you put him inside a black hole, it will slow his time down to a stop which we would see forever. That... sort of sucks. What we're getting at here is, this episode is pretty cool. Give yourself a net full of cosmic fish and feast for a lifetime on this follow-up space show highlighting dark matter, spacetime, and a dozen of other cosmic quandaries. Who ages faster - a person on earth or person in space? Where should you live on the earth if you want to age slower? How soon after your space mask breaks in space will you perish? What does space smell like? Does time exist in space? How cold is it up there? Strap on your space suit and give a listen. The tiny space explorer inside you is ready.

We’ve all gazed up at the stars and wondered - what exactly is out there? The infiniteness of space is downright unfathomable. Then there’s those pesky black holes, believed to suck up everything in their path. And dark matter? Escape Velocity? Time dilation? What does it all mean man? As mere specks of flesh in the vast cosmos, we are no more than a metaphorical ant gazing up at a giant; unable to actually comprehend the significance of it all. On today’s show we do our best to figure it all out. Spoiler alert - we don’t. But exactly what are black holes? Are they a portals to other dimensions? How about the idea that you age slower in space than you do on earth? There are so many other cosmic questions we tackle as we sit down with the smartest man we know,  Marc Ellis, who will knock your space boots off with his knowledge of the universe. Today’s show will educate. Check back next week for a deeper philosophical dive into what it all means. Sir Matthew joins us at (26:30).

We don’t care if your plasma-alcohol level is above the legal space limit. We say, hop aboard the Grog rocket ship for the next installment of our extraterrestrial duet. On today’s show we hear from two alien experiencers who regale us with real-life alien encounters, Sir Matthew calls in from a lake in the northwest known for its alien sightings, and we do our best to intoxicatingly dissect ancient art depicting UFOs (and Popes with oddly shaped hockey sticks but that’s neither here nor there).

When the Grognostic forefathers built this podcast it was created with adjectives that would encapsulate most topics- Esoteric. Paranormal. Unexplained.

For thousands of years, whether depicted on ancient scrolls, or the plot of a Hollywood film in modern times, humans have been obsessed with the idea that we may not be alone in the universe. So why is this exactly? Why the innate, open-mindedness to believe when no concrete evidence exists? We may not admit it,  but each person on this planet, at a minimum, is open to the idea that intelligent life exists outside of our world. But none of us know the answer to the most important question - Why do we believe?

Strap on your space boots and join these aforementioned forefathers for a journey into the esoteric, the paranormal, the unexplained. You’ll hear exclusive interviews with first-hand alien experiencers, a handful of credible witness accounts, and a whole bunch of the usual hilarity.  Amie guests. The Producer guests. We drink a brand new IPA from 101 North Brewery in Petaluma.
