Bob Jordan & Sabine Hossenfelder
Mark Lynch July 29, 2019
In this edition of Inquiry, we talk with BOB JORDAN, musician, DJ, booking agent, guitar seller and author of the wild new book: SENTENCED TO DEATH: A NEAR RANDOM SHUFFLE OF MUSICAL AND LITERARY OBSERVATIONS.
In this edition of Inquiry, we talk with SABINE HOSSENFELDER. She is a research fellow at the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies and author of the physics blog Backreaction. Her new book is a revealing assessment of what is amiss in some of the physics of today such as Superstring Theory or the concept of the Multiverse. Some of these concepts are untestable and some physicists are guided by an odd quixotic search for theories that are “beautiful” Hossenfelder’s book is LOST IN MATH: HOW BEAUTY LEADS PHYSICS ASTRAY.
