Podcast: The Fun in Funeral

This week, on the Tower of Technobabble, we go very, very dark. For the next season of fear episode, we look at scientist hooking up video to people’s brains, the euthanasia roller coaster, suicide by space debris, why russia attacked a big 10 state, and why we might want to rethink the whole Columbus Day thing. Dark, I tell you. Dark. Dark. Dark.

    Great stuff, guys. I am now in a dark, dark place.

    Remember when Taco Bell placed a target in the ocean and promised a taco for every man, woman and child in America if MIR hit it?
