The Three Body Problem: Part Three

Dan and Luke, defenders of the meek, come to the aid of natural gas. Sort of? (5:45 to skip to the book stuff) Professor Dan's back at it again, this week we are learning about cold welding. And by learning I mean you should really look it up yourself because Dan is probably wrong. Shi is still a boss, Ye Wenjie needs to stop being so passive aggressive, and Luke and Dan stumble upon an incredible theory. Welcome all you far away listeners. We come in peace. Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.

The Three Body Problem: Part Two

Well, last episode we didn't think of the most obvious use of the V-suit... Dan tells us the real reason the V-suit is popular and why Wang's wife should be a little worried. And to the Trisolarans, DM us, we've got some advice on how to make your world a little more comfortable. Also can someone please explain the dumb-soldier joke to Dan? He's just not getting it.

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.
