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).
Join us for our next installment of “Brewery Field Trip,” where Steve and Jason traverse the country in search of the best brews and taprooms around. Get an insider's look at the great folks and stories behind your favorite beers. On this edition we meet up with brewmaster and owners of St. Florian's Brewery in Windsor, California. An award-winning California Common calls this 100% family-owned, independent craft brewery home, but when you hear their story you’ll learn that they represent so much more than just great craft beer.
