Ken and Hillary visit biologist, professor, and weird dude John Tomkiel Dean at his UNCG office to discuss why he loves fruit flies, what they can teach us, and why gene research is important. As this was a pretty proper science conversation, Curt played sound guy (to little benefit), till the end, when he could no longer hold back from asking, yet another, dumb question...

Episode 4 goes international! Sponsored by our good friends Japaneki, who are using the wonders of technology to connect the rest of the world with Japanese products and culture, Manheim and Curt try to discuss everything except music, before devolving into a total music discussion before the end of the interview.
The official episode covers educational and societal differences and commonalities seen between Norway and the US, as well as social media, memes, and how the music industry has been hurt - and helped - by technology. We will post the uncut version, with 25 extra minutes of general music discussion, later this week.
Manheim has been pushing the sonic boundaries of music for decades, and is one of the founding members of Black Metal band Mayhem. His latest project is Order.
TYS, and Curt, especially, thank Manheim for giving us his time and insights.

Curt, Hillary, and Ken sit down in the TYS studio with Magic Mike Casey and go over the finer points of magic and the rigors he puts new pharmaceutical drugs through in his day job. We highly recommend seeing his live magic show, but if you are a pharmaceutical company, go through his boss for details on how he can help you out!
