All of Washington is ablaze, so what better time to discuss how fire works? (After a fantastic discussion about lock picking, of course.) We discuss the 4 states of matter (DON’T FORGET PLASMA!), the “Fire Triangle,” the mechanics of stopping wildfires, what’s in the red fire retardant that planes drop, and putting out oil field fires using jet engines mounted on tanks. Plus – Tesla/Musk news, New York Seltzer, how rockets work, and why water isn’t flammable even though its component parts are. Stream, download, subscribe, and share!
