Libidinal Economy and Orgone Theory with Matthew Gilinson
Matt and I discuss Wilhelm Reich, a disciple of Freud who eventually broke away and formed his own theories on psychiatry, the most influential of which was orgastic potency. This was a wild episode, had a lot of fun with Matt. I'd recommend a few blog posts Matt has up as supplementary material, in particular his "Core Concepts" series, which include: I. Libido – A basic definition of libido II. Introduction to Libidinal Economy – A brief survey of the quantitative problem of libido III. The Orgasm Theory – Part 1 – An overview of the orgasm theory and its development IV: The Orgasm Theory – Part 2 – On the orgasm reflex V: The Orgastic Function – Part 1 – The biomechanics and electrophysiology of the orgastic function VI: The Orgastic Function – Part 2 – The recapitulation of the function in other expressions

South African Medicine with Camillo Coccia
We stuck two sessions together, testing the Anchor app stringing function. I think it worked fairly well. Camillo has a really interesting life story as a doctor in South Africa and I learned more about the horrific AIDS epidemic and how much it's affected every other aspect of health.

iGEM and Bioremediation of TCE with William Jackson
We swear a lot in this one, two salty science bois talking about the struggles of getting a project to work at a school with no money and no oversight. But now we both work big biotech jobs in Boston, so maybe everything worked out. If you want to learn more about iGEM, you can check out their website here: https://igem.org/Main_Page
