Play • 56 min

Alex gets his hometown pride on and celebrates the life of fellow Copenhagener Niels Bohr, who revolutionized physics twice over. He may be the smartest person in physics... and he was definitely the nicest!

Hear about Bohr's epic feud with Einstein (drama!) and get a (very short) intro to the weird and freaky world of quantum physics. It will blow your mind.

BTWs include: Nerd humor, the world's smartest cat and dead people. So many dead people.

This episode was co-written by FDC Willard.

In the moment of meta we talk about intrinsic vs. extrinsic motivation and which one is better for enthusiasts.
