Non-Euclidean Æthercast #47 – Geek Teacher Double Standards plus The Zombies, Run! Helloween Race
After a longer break than I had anticipated it is finally time for the next episode of the Non-Euclidean Æthercast. This one is on the double-bladed side of things. The first part is a bit of a rant about being a geek and a teacher and how pupils perceive you and how their gender colours the perception. I rant a bit because I had something related to the fake-geek-girl phenomenon happening (as an observer, mind you). The second part is about my experience with the absolutely awesome Zombies, run! Halloween race. SPOILER ALERT! So, for the Fhtagn of Cthulhu, please enjoy.   Header image © Zombies! Run, fair use.

Non-Euclidean Æthercast #46: Elon Musk is probably Batman
In times like these, when the majority of billionaires use their money to bribe invest into the careers of politicians, especially if those billionaires are connected to the coal, gas, and oil industries and do not give a damn of what happens after they have lived out their lives, it is good to see a super-rich individual like Elon Musk. Elon Musk is a visionary who uses his wealth and genius to bring humanity forward and pushes the boundaries of what a private person can achieve. Tesla Motors, SolarCity and of course SpaceX are only some of the examples where Musk turned his visions into reality and also did something that helps humanity in the present and more importantly in the future. Of all the billionaires alive today, Elon Musk is the one most likely to turn into Batman, which is the topic of today’s podcast. And this is the article about the power grid in Australia and Elon Musk’s involvement. I am talking about that in the podcast.   Header image © NASA, Public Domain.

Non-Euclidean Æthercast #45 – RPC 2017 Recap
An unbroken line of four years and four podcast episodes (small hurray)! I went to the RPC in Cologne four the fourths time this year and again, it was epic! This time I think I also broke my personal record of legwork on a convention, since I walked around for about 6-7 hours straight. So, here is my happy-rant recap of the event (day one anyway). Please enjoy!

Non-Euclidean Æthercast #44: Nerdy Hobbies, Cosplay, Teachers, and Cosplaying Teachers
Today’s Non-Euclidean Æthercast is a happy rant about my experiences as a teacher when you teach children who are also gamers and cosplayers. All in all it is a win-win: Pupils are more attentive if they like a teacher and a teacher sharing their hobbies is (as far as my experience goes) more likable and also approachable. Case in point: A number of my pupils have added me to their list of friends on Steam. And this is Jukedeck I was talking about concerning the background music. (yes, I actually said juckebox in the podcast, I know and noticed it too late…) Header image © screenshot made by myself from Fallout: New Vegas

Non-Euclidean Æthercast #43 – A chat with planetary scientist Jo Lima
In today’s episode of the Non-Euclidean Æthercast I have the great pleasure of chatting with one of my oldest international contacts in the Steampunk scene: Jo Lima from Portugal. Since we have known each other for quite a while, a lot has happened and Jo is no longer active in the Portuguese Steampunk scene. Real life has „forced“ her to become a planetary scientist (to my everlasting envy) and she is currently working on her PhD thesis in Madrid. Our chat mainly concerns astronomy and planetary science, please enjoy!

Non-Euclidean Æthercast #42 – Chat and Interview with Lavie Tidhar
This has been a long time coming and I am actually a little bit confused about why it did not happen earlier, but here it is: I have the great pleasure of welcoming my favourite contemporary author, Lavie Tidhar, for an interview and chat about a lot of things in my podcast. For those of you who have been following this blog for a while you know I have reviewed a lot of Lavie’s works, most recently Central Station and A Man Lies Dreaming. Both novels are mentioned in the podcast, as well as their respective genesis. Other topics of the interview are: A most mysterious project (only hinted at), the difficulties of publishing novels with controversial plots, and how the reception of Lavie’s works differ from country to country. Just have a listen yourselves!     Photographs by Kevin Nixon. (c) Future Publishing 2013, with kind permission

Non-Euclidean Æthercast #41 – Interview with Shequeta Smith and review of Rayven Choi
A few weeks back I already posted the trailer of the graphic novel series Rayven Choi, featuring the eponymous super heroine who is out to hunt the people who killed her parents. Sounds a bit like Batman, but it is not. Obviously, the hero is a lady and Rayven Choi is also not a billionaire but poor and not least of all, she is black. So we have a graphic novel featuring a poor black super heroine which is something I have not seen in comics at all. Luckily, after featuring Rayven Choi I was contacted by the author of Rayven Choi and director of the trailer I featured, Shequeta Smith, and she offered to be a guest on my podcast. I of course took the opportunity, and as you can hear in the podcast above, we had a really fun chat and I am hoping we get to meet during the planned European tour. Also, hee is the review of the grahic novel which I begin by featuring some of the pages of the first book in the series:   As you can see, the artwork is top-notch, it is also the only thing that is not quite to […]

Non-Euclidean Æthercast #40 – Cooking against the Apocalypse
It happens rarely I post something openly political, this time it has to be different. Because of recent events in the USA I had to voice my views on the matter and also point out a few things we can all enjoy together. Because we are still on the same planet together! Anyway, please listen the podcast, share it and then enjoy the awesome music below (and get some food you can enjoy together with a neighbour with a different background than yours). These are two sources for the info in my podcast: Mike Pence’s views (abortion and others)   Donald Trump and nuclear weapons   EDIT: I forgot, a link concerning the racist violent incidents after Trump’s election.   And now for some better stuff from the happy part of the podcast, here is some great arabian Heavy Metal And here is some Iranian Death Metal!

Non-Euclidean Æthercast #39 – STEM and STEAM
A few weeks back I already hinted at me delving into the matter of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) versus STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) as an educational paradigm. I have since done some research whcih has gone into the podcast, so please, have a listen! Special thanks to my friend and now Patron Bonsart Bokel of Radio Retrofuture. Please consider becoming his patron, he is really putting an incredible amount of work into his channel.   And now for some links: STEM vs STEAM (the original article Bonsart sent to me) Brian Dunning’s view of the matter Using music to teach arithmetics Music related concepts to teach high-school maths (research paper) And this is Professor Harald Lesch, talking about his views regarding education and which subjects to focus on, and he is clearly in favour of focusing on sports and the arts. The video is in German:

Non-Euclidean Æthercast #38 – A Chat with Bonsart Bokel of Radio Retrofuture
Today I have the great pleasure of having Bonsart Bokel, host of the Radio Retrofuture Youtube channel (please subscribe!) as my guest on the Non-Euclidean Æthercast. We cover a lot of ground during the course of the podcast, from Medieval reenactment, to retrofuturistic reenactment, yes this actually works. Bonsart has founded the RAG-TAG: Regiment Anachronistische Grenadiers, check them out. RAG-TAG are actually supposed to be the goons and evil henchmen, but like so many of the „evil guys“, the 501st Legion is the best example, I think, they do some really great stuff, in their case some „Stormtrooper courses“ for children, with nerf guns and other fun-enhancers. But I am not going to spoil the podcast here, just tease it. Before I forget, check out here for interview on the Fedora Chronicles with Bonsart that gets mentioned on a number of occasions during our chat. And just some shameless promotion: Bonsart and I are both at Patreon and would of course love some support, so, if you have some change to spare: Metapunk on Patreon Radio Retrofuture on Patreon
