#0742: Robert J. Sawyer; Sheldon H. Jacobson; & Andrew Fazekas

The Stuph File Program



Canadian sci-fi legend, Robert J. Sawyer, has his 25th novel out, called The Downloaded. But what’s unique is, for the first six months of its release, it’s only out as an audio book via Audible.

The biannual time change is once again upon us, meanwhile the debate over why we still have to do this rages on. Sheldon H. Jacobson, a professor of computer science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, proposes a simple compromise between Daylight Saving and Standard time.

Science writer, Andrew FazekasThe Night Sky Guy, author of National Geographic Backyard Guide to the Night Sky and National Geographic’s Stargazer Atlas: The Ultimate Guide To The Night Sky, is back to talk about the use of AI in space exploration.
(Patreon Stuph File Program fans, there is a Patreon Reward Extra where we give some love to Venus; learn about kilonova explosions that can kill us all; plus, just how old is the Moon?).

This week’s guest slate is presented by Bilal Butt, the afternoon host at Montreal’s CHOM 97.7, “The Spirit of Rock”.  He’s also in to voiceovers, event hosting, music production.
