Let’s Talk Food

SPAWN THEORY
February 2, 2019

How our diets are changing and our outlook for the future to reduce waste. We are joined by Steven McEntyre (self-proclaimed “rockstar of the stars who rocks”) eats whatever he can find. As what he thinks of meat, he’s at the top of the chain. He brings valuable insight of how food waste can be reduced by being a vegetarian. He is up against Thalian Green, who calls himself a carniverian (a strict meat-eater), because of his love for his plant friends. Things get awkward really fast as these two extremes get into an argument.

This was unplanned and unscripted, the result is sometimes odd timings and other times funny coincidences. The “song” at the end performed by Thalian was also unscripted, and only one take was performed. The result wasn’t so bad considering Thalian has no musical experience.

Let’s talk about climate change.

How should we approach and discuss climate change? Engage with illustrations or with data? At the Experimental Vlog we discuss climate change with two personalities: Steven McEntyre (an artist) and Prof Nicklebreth (a scientist). While they have opposite thoughts on how to present scientific data, they both can appreciate that climate change is real and that we must do something about it. Being our first episode, we hope that these personalities join us later for more exciting discussions. Like all our Spawn Theory videos, this was completely unscripted and unplanned, anything that would suggest otherwise is just a coincidence.

Explaining our PhD research is as essential as conducting the research in the first place. And it’s already difficult to explain the research to other scientists in the field, but to present it to a non-science audience, in 3 minutes, now that’s the actual challenge!
