Episode One Hundred And Seventy Four – On Art And Science – Carbon Dating And The Society for Science-Based Medicine
Kyle Sanders began writing comics at the University of Science And Fine Arts for a student-run lampoon site, then spun-off to create the college webcomic. Following pilot training and a move to Little Rock, Kyle found himself looking for a way to find intelligent conversation and founded Little Rock’s first Skeptics In The Pub.
After a year of co-hosting Skeptics and a string of embarrassing romantic encounters, a collection of punchlines had been forming that desperately needed an outlet. A deployment to Iraq and Afghanistan provided the boredom necessary to turn these punchlines and stories into the epic combination of science, characters driven comedy, and the awkwardness of dating. That’s where the story of Carbon Dating begins. Check out his awesome work at http://carbon-comic.com.
