This week’s episode was with the lively Phillip Broughton, the health physicist from UC Berkely who brought us Black Blood of the Earth, the cold-pressed and ultra-caffeinated coffee mentioned on a couple of previous episodes.

Phillip’s stories of bartending at the South Pole, the hazards of working with grad students in radioactive conditions and his own fascinating interests made for a very interesting conversation which, at many points, I wished we’d had more time for.

Don’t be put off by the language warning on the episode. I think there are all of two swear words in the whole episode, and neither are words you wouldn’t hear while waiting in line at the grocery store. At least at my grocery store.
