What meets at the intersection of resonance, oscillation, and the piezoelectric effect? This episode explores how things from electric lighters to the atomic clock keeps ticking. Also: Todd’s over-inflation drama, Mark’s rat infestation, shame-eating and string theory, Birdie Sanders and the dispensary worker, Portland’s small-town vibe, California has the best drivers, the “affordable” Tesla goes on sale, Microsoft’s AI goes hideously and hilariously awry, how you can get “none more black” than Vantablack, and yet another reason to wear wooden shoes. Enjoy, and spread the word!
