Discussing gravitational waves with LIGO team member Joshua Smith (Tomorrow Daily)

Ashley and Jeff deep dive into Mattel's NY Toy Fair announcements, the shoe sole that aims to charge your devices through motion. We also welcome Joshua Smith (CSUF, LIGO collaborative) to discuss gravitational waves and what they mean for future research.

Here's our weekly bullet list of topics on today's long episode. Enjoy!

  • Headline Deep Dive: We discuss security concerns about the new Barbie smart dream house, how 3D printing like Mattel's updated ThingMaker will be the future of toys, and whether or not Tidal can survive amidst a sea of competition.
  • Guest: Joshua Smith (California State University, Fullerton; LIGO collaborative) sits down to talk about LIGO's recent detection of gravitational waves, and what it means for astrophysics and you.
  • Jeff and Ashley try to figure out why you'd want an Immersit in your living room in this week's Back It or Hack It
  • Into It: Ashley can't stop playing Helldivers, and Jeff really loved the film "Where to Invade Next"
