On episode SIX of Let the Bird Fly! we welcome Dr. Kerry Kuehn to discuss science, and in particular physics. The free-for-all turns into a party in the studio as we discussed the role of signs in society, whether the designated hitter attempts a slap-shots through the goalpost, and the age-old question: should we eat babies? Wade also puts Dr. Kuehn on the hot-seat grilling him with “science” questions that leave Dr. Kuehn red, Wade sounding like a dullard, and most everyone guffawing. We do, however, finally manage to get to the topic at hand, and Dr. Kuehn’s expertise: namely, physics. Dr. Kuehn explains both how he approaches science and how he approaches teaching science. Dr. Kuehn proves to be a fascinating thinker and, despite being a scientist (we try not to hold that against him), he’s extremely easy to understand…he should be a teacher! (If you are into physics, and especially if you teach physics, do yourself a favor and pick up his books: A Student’s Guide through the Great Physics Texts!)
