We tried something different this week and recorded a Zoom call with our friend and chemist Joe. The video version will be on our YouTube channel. In all honesty, the audio isn’t up to our usual standards but it’s still usable. My (Gregg’s) is pretty muddy, but since my contributions to chemistry are usually just […]
Bad terminology, social media, copycat farmers, dogs and kids, nothing is off limits. Presented by two grumpy old men who know everything and just want to drink our beer in peace.
