Ty takes over hosting duties and welcomes Kirk Aug to the show. Kirk talks about Neil deGrasse Tyson and the excitement around classifying Pluto as a dwarf planet (read Kirk's article here). The use of science in popular culture for good (Cosmos) to the not so good (Creation Museum) is discussed. The conversation ends with a look at technology in popular culture, particularly robots and their eventually place in society.
