Rick joins Eric to talk about new stuff. First off is Eric’s favorite weather website, WeatherUnderground.com . Eric’s personal weather station is connected to the Weather Underground site, where you can get hyper-local weather data and nice radar.
New podcasts Eric has been listening to lately while repairing plaster and drywall. Eric recently found The History Chicks http://thehistorychicks.com/ , two women talking about women in history. Its a well researched show, the hosts clearly know what they are talking about, and have an interest in sharing history.
New Tech City http://www.wnyc.org/shows/newtechcity/ is produced by WNYC in NYC, its a technology show but it isn’t a super geek nerd type of thing. Recent shows have been about getting teen girls involved in technology and a startup vs. the postal service.
Rick likes the You Are Not So Smart podcast http://youarenotsosmart.com/ which explores self delusion.
Rick drops in some constitutional history and talking for free on a podcast.
Eric has been watching the PBS documentary series Carrier, a 10 part series on life on the USS Nimitz http://www.pbs.org/weta/carrier/
