Positron vs Megatron

In this episode we kick off trying to answer the question ‘what is an Arab’ and Arab identity. The discussion automagically veers to the “genie” on Twitter.

Ammar then quizzes our local theoretical physicist Reem on the science behind the flux capacitor from Back To The Future. Reem then tells us about her work at CERN and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC.) Which leads to particle physics, positrons, anti-matter and a lot of other mind-numbing physical concepts that Reem did a marvelous job explaining and graciously dealt with our stupid questions and Ammar’s lame jokes.
