There's pretty much no reason to not show that.Opposite viewpoint (from maha) here...enjoyed it very much. Dr. Dave showed his teaching skills well..and demonstrated patience.
Would have been cool if a clip of Melling's amazing runout could have been shown.
It wasnt meant for avid players. It was meant for Neil and his followers. Pretty much those that really dont give 3 hoots for pool, but appreciate the math and physics involved. It was a casual podcast... not a documentary.How did you allow that fiasco to happen? Was there no outline of what was going to be discussed?
There might be some open spots on the bench soon….I find it ironic that they mentioned the Cincinnati Bengals and field goals since last weekends Bengals/Packers game had 5, count them, 5 missed field goals for the game win by both teams combined (2 by Bengals/3 by Packers) until the Packers finally made one for the win in overtime. 2 of those attempts hit the upright and went wide.

I listen to a lot of his lectures on YouTube because I don't have to look at them when I'm working I can just put them on in the background.I gave them a very detailed outline of possible items for discussion, but they went rogue on me and I had to respond to many things immediately with no preparation, trying to recall everything mostly from memory under a fairly stressful situation among such "large personalities."
Yeah..... just say no!I listen to a lot of his lectures on YouTube because I don't have to look at them when I'm working I can just put them on in the background.
He seems like he can be really arrogant, even when he's on talk shows like Colbert he'll just talk right over people. I guess you were just a little bit outgunned as well as trying to remain polite talking to people obviously didn't know what they were talking about.
I once gave a newspaper interview where I said a lot of embarrassing things about other people. The next day I called my attorney to see what I can do about getting this thing not printed.
Fortunately they only used one of my quotes which was actually kind of humorous and not the embarrassing things I had said. Got to be careful when you're talking to the media.
I think you did a great job. It's a podcast, it's supposed to be entertaining and some banter between guests, it went really well. Anything Neil does is entertainment first, science second. Or in other words he has a way to make scientific concepts palatable to common folk. Honestly I think you did a fine job. A little banter isn't some disrespect as some AZers are thinking. It's a podcast and it turned out just fine, great for the game of pool overall.
I was happy with how it went. I thought they would edit out some of my stuff, but they included literally every second we recorded.
I made a few mistakes I wish I could have gotten them to fix or edit out, but nothing major. For example, I said "The Color of Money" came out in 1996 (instead of 1986).
In retrospect, I wish they would have edited out my response to the comedian about the "butt." That was a little inappropriate. I guess I don't have a future in politics now.
