Since the dawn of time, man has speculated about the truth of the Universe. Where do we come from? Why are we here? What is in the center of the earth? Which is better, cake or pie?
At Balticon 44 Sir John Cmar, and Professor Jared Axelrod revealed that truth. And now, through the power of Interweb, they bring the Truth About The Universe to you!
From the official Balticon Program:
JR Blackwell, Laura Burns, John Cmar and Jared Axelrod present both historical misinformation and lies they made up on the fly in this discussion about the nature of the universe. From the smallest microbe to the biggest gas giant, learn how things aren’t–but could be–presented by a panel of experts. Just, don’t believe anything they say. Moderator Arioch Morningstar.
The Truth About The Universe was performed live at Balticon 44. Slides were created by Laura Burns and @jrblackwellJ.R. Blackwell. The dialog was improvised on the spot by John Cmar, Jared Alexrod, and Arioch Morningstar. Music, editting, and introduction by Chooch Schubert.
