Episode 41: The Light Which Pushes Back The Darkness With The Tolkien Professor | The Titanium Physicists Podcast

Once upon a time there was light. but after that there was a great age of darkness. the dark was deep and thick. Any bright light would be absorbed, and nothing was glowing. This was the Dark Age of the Universe. But small things gathered together, and began to shine. Oh how they shone. and their light pushed back the darkness. On this episode of the titanium physicists podcast, we’re talking about the beginning and the end of the great dark age of the universe. Our guest is Corey Olsen, the Tolkien Professor , who started his OWN DANG INSTITUTE OF HIGHER LEARNING.   Pretty great. Note that this episode is Loooong. and there is lots of stuff after the end credits, too. pretty rad. Physicists: Vicky Scowcroft, Mike Zemcov   Intro Music: Ted Leo and the Pharmacists  Exit Music: John Vanderslice  http://titaniumphysicists.brachiolopemedia.com/2014/01/01/episode-41-the-light-which-pushes-back-the-darkness-with-the-tolkein-professor/
