Isaac is back from a whirlwind trip across America, which included watching the eclipse in Idaho, teaching NASA scientists, and attending Burning Man! Charles and special guest Evan Williams inquire about Isaac's Burning Man experience, which included getting fondled in a shower, urinating on himself, and having numerous breakdowns. Isaac describes Burning Man as "very douchey" but also well worth going as it's a unique experience where you can become a different person entirely. Also discussed: "sparkle ponies." Burning Man's inaccurate hippie reputation, and the dark undercurrent of sexual exploitation.
