In between the worst opening and closing to our podcast ever is the amazing story of Phineas Gage, who survived an 1848 blasting accident that blew a 3-foot long metal rod clean through his face and skull, and despite losing parts of his brain (which he vomited out), recovered fully. Listen while you eat, won’t you? It’s a fascinating piece of medical history. Also: “Stranger Things,” LHC didn’t discover a new particle after all, automating UPS, Iran bans Pokemon GO, 3D pancakes, DeepNet/DarkNet, getting a sunburn through the clouds, and Seaman the uneaten dog. Enjoy!
