Military to Maker Podcast: Episode 2

It’s Called STEM, You Fool!

The show started off with the best intentions: to discuss how to get our children interested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), but our panel cannot be controlled. The conversation quickly evolved into a discussion about the nature and value of learning STEM, particularly in a post fact world. This isn’t the show to be missed: From Jon Hohol’s epic rant about the scientific method as a weapon against conjecture to Astro Teller’s take on Moore’s Law, Episode 2 of the Military to Maker Podcast entertains and enlightens.
