This is a show concept I came up with half a decade ago, as the show itself explains. The journal article may be found as PubMed ID#19323757 ( http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19323757 ) if you want to follow along.

Hopefully the updated time references below for the show-note comments are now correct for this version of it. They should be close, anyway.

Also, I'm oddly pleased at how inferior the "old" part of today's episode sounds: it means I've actually gotten a lot better at recording and editing. (It's quite listenable still, I think, it just doesn't sound as good as the newer stuff.)

  • 07:52 I'm pretty sure that the Hasbro corporation, owners of the "Play-Doh(tm)" trademark, don't actually make microfluidizers - it's just an analogy

  • 11:05 Yes, including you...
  • 11:47 Yes, "Fecal Transplants". Ewwww.
  • 11:53 You're welcome.
  • 12:30 If you're not familiar with this kitchen gadget, a "French Press" is a device for making coffee or tea. It's A glass cylinder with a fine wire-screen plunger. I suspect you could "plunge" the ingredients together repeatedly to get a sloppy substitute for the microfluidizer processing.
  • 12:28 Larger volume/surface-area ratio, you see... (The "Album Art" photo is "She Slimed Me", by "Jurveston" on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jurvetson/131023758/ )

Interesting

This show was really interesting. Love the for dummies way you present the otherwise somewhat hard to understand topic. Great show!

I guess I should do more of these

Thanks Phalax and My5t3r102 (and elmussol over on the blog) for the quick feedback - sounds like this format has at least a few fans, so I've bumped it up on my "potentially upcoming topics" list and I'll plan on doing more.

I have a pretty large stack of papers and subjects available, but more suggestions are also welcome!

Good and different

This was good and something rather unique too. Informative, funny, quirky.

There will be more

Thanks also Quvmoh, NE5C1U5, and mcnalu (and if anyone is waiting in the moderation queue, thank you, too.)

After these comments, I'll definitely be doing more of these.
