The NYC Indian Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Prior to my recent visit to the World Science Festival, I had only heard whispers of the mysterious Panna II Garden Indian Restaurant in New York's East Village. Now I have experienced it for myself and must dedicate my remaining years to deciphering what I witnessed. The rumors told of twin Indian restaurants, their doors opposed atop a flight of stairs. Word also had it that highly aggressive barkers from each restaurant worked the sidewalk, fighting like hyenas over each passing potential customer. Let's go inside and solve the cosmic mystery.

SFSL Roundup: Halloween Shenanigans

It's been a little more like Stuff From the Mad Science Lab in the weeks leading up to Halloween. Shovels in hand, Allison and I have trudged off into the moonlit cemeteries to unearth a number of grotesque, chilling and occasionally peer-reviewed horrors from YOUR science and culture. Then we dragged it all into the podcasting lab, flipped the switch and created three awesome Halloween episodes: Science vs. Monsters! This one's a real slobber knocker, folks, because we pit actual science against fictional monsters in an all-out battle royale. We'll discuss who would win in a fight between bigfoot and the wolfman -- and tell you why Charles Darwin already decided the match. Plus much more!
