Wow, Ben Tippet let me come back on his show, The Titanium Physicists Podcast! Thanks, Ben. This time it’s Episode 64: E and N (The edges of Einstein) along with Ben, science and technology writer Maya Inamura, and fellow astrophysicist Katie Mack. Listen above or click through to Ben’s site. We talked about general relativity and how we know it’s (basically) correct from observations and experiments. It was super fun!
