We try something new in this episode, an alternate format we’re calling (for now) “Off The Dome.” One of us picks a topic of interest, tightly organizes the episode around demonstrating the topic, and the other two of us “play” dumb and ask questions for “your” benefit… because of course we’re brilliant and already know everything. In this episode, davyrockett drones on about high pass filters, but we promise it’s not boring—we still act like idiots.

Find out if that’s what she said.
