Episode 30 - Libraries

Do you go to the library? This week we ponder the meaning of libraries, long-term data storage, and the importance of access to good information.

Also, diamond batteries and Proxima B. Plus, I will be off until the new year. With the holiday season upon us, I'm going to take a little vacation. I hope everyone has a stress-free end of the year.
