Host Paul Carr and our panel welcome astrophysicist Brian Koberlein: scientist, teacher, blogger and podcaster. We talk about what motivates science and science communication, the great observatories being built in Chile and Brian's recent trip there, the grand structure of the universe and some recent hints of inhomogeneity, Einstein, Noether and the forces driving genius,  the shabby treatment of women scientists, and the recent exoplanet discoveries. In spite of some minor audio glitches, we think this is one of our best episodes yet.
