TOPIC: Â This is the second (of two) in our series of interviews from the floor of ConGlomeration 2014 in Lousiville, KY.
In the firstÂ segment, we discussÂ cubesats, kevlar solar sails, 3D printing and more with Dr. Les Johnson! Dr. Johnson is an author and an honest to goodness NASA rocket scientist, soÂ we have a fabulous and in-depth hard science talkÂ about the future of space exploration. Â You’ll want to check out his books, both the ones already out and those now available for preorder:
Immediately following that, we’re graced with Adam English and Rand Bellavia from the band “The Surfing Colonel from Apocalypse Now” … no, wait, that’s not right … it’s “Ookla the Mok!” And make sure youÂ spell thatÂ with a “K” unless you’re really, really intoÂ reggae.
Seriously though, this is aÂ fabulous interview covering the gamut from filk to tech-pop rock, what it means that “real”Â music can now be madeÂ without ever touching an instrument, and how you too can use Melodyne to sound just like Jon Bonham – without 2 liters of vodka in you! Plus, we discover thatÂ Rand truly is a polymath with a prodigious memory that may, just may (shhh, don’t tell him), outstrip our very own Jay Garmon’s!
Here are some useful links for getting even more Mok in your ears:
Podcast only songs of the week are fromÂ Ookla the Mok vs. EvilÂ and include “Mwahaha” and “Doctor Octopus (feat. Venom).” Enjoy!
