EP 143 - Brian Cox
Welcome to the Pretty Intense Podcast. We are getting into a realm today that is truly one of my favorite topics, Physics. We have Professor Brian Cox CBE with us today who is a British Rock Star of Physics. We talked about black holes, consciousness, space and time, fractals, so many areas of science. When we learn more and more about the universe we learn what our role in the universe is, and how to live our lives. We talked about aliens, extraterrestrials, and Brian's big life question. You can catch the Brian Cox full experience, which is on its North American Tour right now. Tickets on sale at https://briancoxlive.co.uk. We hope you enjoy this hyper galactic episode.
