Episode Info: Ready for a party in your ears from those wacky Nerds again? This week we are celebrating, scratching our chins in suspicion, and looking at upcoming events that we can use to make money. But first, grab a cup of Earl Grey, hot, get a comfy seat and get ready because we have a party. It’s here, that marvellous time of year when we find out who has won a noble prize! It’s awesome, kind of like a Nerds holiday celebrating knowledge and learning, yay! For those wondering Buck is bouncing around the office with excitement. Speaking of which, his topic this week is the Nobel prize winners in Chemistry, and it is for the Lithium Ion battery. A long time coming we know, but still, it is definitely worthy. Buck is still reading the lists and articles about this, and the Professor is enjoying this to.Next up we have DJ telling us about the latest with him doing little, erm, um, oh, sorry. Apparently it is about the new Dolittle movie, not him being lazy. Now there are some interesting points in this section so make sure you listen carefully. We won’t give away all the details here, no, listen in and see what is happening. We can tell you there is a name change, and no, it isn’t DJ being rebranded to some funny name such as Purveyance Slave Droid. Mainly because he still hasn’t learned how to make the perfect cup of Earl Grey.Next we hear how someone has had an epically lucky coincidence when naming their crowd funding campaign. We are told it is completely unintentional though. Although Buck thinks that this is the next generation of Citizen Con, sorry, Star Con, no, what is it, star rippoff? Oh you know what we mean. Anyway, this bloke was trying to raise capital for a game he was developing and listen in to hear the rest of this fantastic story.As usual we have the shout outs, with special mention to Christina Koch and Jessica Meir, the first all female spacewalk crew. Then we have the usual remembrances, birthdays and special events. We are going to be appearing at Supanova Brisbane so stop by and say hello, we will be happy to see you, also we have a special announcement this next week. Until then, take care of yourselves, look out for each other and stay hydrated.EPISODE NOTES:Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2019 winners - https://www.downtoearth.org.in/news/science-technology/chemistry-nobel-for-development-of-lithium-ion-batteries-67159Dolittle movie update - https://deadline.com/video/universal-dolittle-robert-downey-jr-trailer/Day of Dragons confusion - https://twitter.com/icotom/status/1182291839027761152?s=20Games currently playingDJ– MK 11 - https://www.playstation.com/en-us/games/mortal-kombat-11-ps4/Rating – 4/5Buck– World of Warships - https://worldofwarships.com/Rating – 4.5/5Professor– Creeper World 3 - https://store.steampowered.com/app/280220/Creeper_World_3_Arc_Eternal/Rating – 9/10Other topics discussedKryten (Red Dwarf character)- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KrytenJohn Goodenough (Oldest Nobel Prize winner at the age...
