You just can’t keep us away: in this episode we talk physics, but only the fun and cool stuff! Inspired by a question from a student, we discuss some of our favorite and most mind blowing topics we learned about during our time as physicists. We talk about the true weirdness in the quantum world, the ultimate fate of the universe, and come up with a potential new name for the podcast. Episode and links below.[Read More]
Episode 4: The Logic of Love
We're back and it's time to talk about love
Long time no podcast, but we’re back! Even having jobs can’t keep us away. In this episode we discuss love song lyrics, the love between human and machine, machine and machine…lots of love all around. And laughter while anticipating how AIs will control the world before we know it. It’s good to be back![Read More]

We had a lot of fun in this one, while including some science and math (it’s in our nature, apparently). Check out the episode, with a few show notes below on the full post.[Read More]
Episode 2: Covenant
The head of Fassbender
Hey, it’s Episode 2! Fresh off of Brandon’s computer (once again cutting, mixing, and producing), we discuss the movie Alien: Covenant, the sequel to Prometheus, which we talked about in Episode 1. What did we think? Did John hate himself for watching another Prometheus movie, or was it more like Alien(s)? And did Brandon come up with more theories for the ultimate biological weapon? Only one way to find out…[Read More]
Episode 1: Prometheus
This is the very first episode of Tangent Space! Brandon and John discuss the 2012 Ridley Scott film Prometheus ahead of the sequel out now, Alien: Covenant. One liked it, one hated it, and they dive into theories to interpret the movie.
