In formal science there is this thing called the "null hypothesis" and even though my may have never heard of it you're probably more familiar with it than you think. Have you ever heard of false positives and false negatives? Either way, this is the episode for you.
How many things can you create? Can you take an idea and then plan out and engineer and gather resources and end up with a complete product, all on your own? I don't think I can. It's just that things are so damn complex!
In the words of Anna Nalick, "Life's like an hourglass glued to the table..." In the words of David Bowie, "Time may change me, but I can't trace time." In the words of Chicago, "Does anybody really know what time it is?" In the words of Foreigner, "It feels like the first time..."
Clearly people like to think about time. I do, too.
Instead of my planned episode about the Apple/FBI situation, I had to transition to something else because the FBI withdrew their latest lawsuit in light of their successful entry into the most popular iPhone since the iPhone 4. I still talk about tech, but I also talk about cars, guns, murder, gender identity, and other things. Have a listen to hear how I wrap all of these ideas into one coherent episode. But beware, you may get a bit of a headache.
Everyone wants to be a parent at some point, right? “Not I,” says me. Kids are a drain on money, opportunity and time, and that’s just the start.
Note: This episode does not contain any James Bond references.
Why is everyone constantly competing and what does economics have to do with it? Also, I talk about advertising again.
What do The Hero's Journey, introversion and extroversion, YouTube, HBO, Ellen Degeneres, Michael Bay, Meatloaf, Enron, and introspection have to do with one another? You'll just have to listen to find out, but I promise it makes some sense...I hope. Enjoy!
Sure, you may say you'd kill for something, but what does that really mean and how is that different from dying for something? What goes in to each decision?
Have you ever wondered why science holds theories in such high regard if they’re just guesses? Then step on in because I don’t think that word means what you think it means.
This is the first episode of Grey Matters, a podcast that I hope will explore the ins and outs of the world in which we live in fun, amusing, or otherwise interesting ways. In this episode I talk about plans for the podcast and give you a few options for contacting me. Also, I apologize at the end, but you'll have to listen to hear why.
This episode of Grey Matters was planned and edited by me, Eric Crane.
Master of recording is my boy Reggie.
The intro music you heard was written and performed by me.
