On today’s show we sit down with Dr. Lindsay Weisner to talk about all things brain and answer the questions you’ve always wondered. Do we really only use 10% of our brains? When do men's brain neurons actually connect? 10? 20? 30? Ever? What are some wild but true neurological anomalies she’s come across in her career? How many bitchy PTA parents are typically in a PTA group? How many times can a clinical psychologist swear tastefully? These questions and more...

We go through life jettisoning from one destination to another bound by constraints of time and commitments but many of us don't often stop to ask why. Or what's the point of it all? Our guest today believes that a healthy diet of discovery, curiosity and mind-opening research is just the prescription for a healthy soul.

WIth the recent invasion of Ukraine by the Russians, it poses questions about what happens above our blue planet. While us humans (naming no names) are making terrible decisions to inflict misery upon our fellow man (and woman) science, space, and the advancement of humanity is still going on in our sky. Enter stage left, right, center - the International Space Station. Originally launched in 1998 and supported by five participating space agencies from around the globe it has been pivotal in the advancement of space exploration. However what happens when what we do on earth threatens what we're doing in space? Tune in this episode as we explore for ourselves while we of course drink some good beer in the name of advancing humanity inside our own podcast recording studio (or un-advance).
Well, there are shows where they are a blast to record but embarrassing to post. This is one of those shows. Come listen to hear Steve's best moments on this planet and learn about a founding father you've never heard of before (one of those is true). He'll also regale you about a story explaining what was the actual cause leading to world war II you've also never heard. What's that Timothy? Two American stories on the 4th of July you've never heard before? Yep. And this isn't one of those fictional, nonsensical Grognostic stories - disclaimer - this is actually 100% true history. (Feel like we have to note when we're being serious) however, they are not conveyed in the most intelligent, sober, concise manner a real historian might. But they are conveyed by a person who is alive... barely...
Happy 4th All.
Did humans evolve naturally? Maybe. Did humans evolve spiritually? Possibly. Did humans evolve a third way? Perhaps. Author Tim Kelly joins us on today’s show to shed some light on what he believes is a hidden history of humanity. We talk about ancient, lost technologies, the pyramids, Lemuria, Atlantis, aliens of course, and what the true building blocks of our DNA is. It’s a fun conversation, so put on your open-mind hat and turn on that internal imagination machine and let’s go!

About an hour outside of Dublin in the heart of Ireland sits a farm that has been family-owned for 13 generations. At first look, this farm looks and feels like any other - mixed farm, with woodland, grass for livestock, fields of crops etc. And, it is true that owner David Walsh-Kemmis puts on his farming overalls one pant leg at a time just like every other farmer but there's one glaring difference; when he puts on those pants, he then goes out and grows award-winning barley which in turn he uses to brew some of the best emerging craft brews in Ireland. (And I'll be honest the farm looks pretty amazing too but it didn't work with that long-winded joke about a pant leg)
The Ballykilcavan Brewery located in Stradbally, in County Loais, should be circled on every tourist's itinerary map. (They do amazing tours by the way). Most of the beer ingredients are sourced right on the farm including water from their own well, hops from their own garden, and did we mention their award-winning barley? We'll mention it again. For those who don't know barley is pretty much the main ingredient in that cold, refreshing beverage you're probably drinking right now - beer.
On today's show we get the fortunate opportunity to sit down with David to talk about the history of the brewery, their beers, what the craft beer scene is like in Ireland as well as a pot filled with gold nuggets of information about everything beer-related on this fine St. Patrick's Day. And don't just take his word for you - the brewery was named the most innovative business of the year in Co. Laois in 2019 and their beers have won six medals in the 2019 Dublin Craft Beer Cup. So, saddle up lad and grab a pint or two and join us for a lovely interview with Ballykilcavan Brewery owner, David Walsh-Kemmis.
