Golden Compass Ch 10-13
Caitlin, Anya, and Alan talk about a universe where they banged a physicist- and a universe where they didn’t. We also talk about Chapters 10-13 of The Golden Compass. We find out that John Calvin believed in boring things, that no cats were harmed in Schrödinger’s experiment, and #NotAllBears.
