  1. Regarding the discussion of the paper in “PAIN” (starting about minute 61): It is really refreshing or should I say interesting to see these serious scientists go through a paper outside of their areas of expertise. I good model of how to get a general idea of something without having to become expert. Also it is a good example of unexpected interaction of different not terribly closely related of different subjects. Thank you TWIV for delving into this.

    Where do we find Timestamps by Jolene? I canโ€™t find them on her Twitter. Would be awesome if they posted the Timestamps at the bottom of the episodes! Thanks
