When NASA calls you, it’s either terrible or good (with Dr. Gavin Schmidt)
Sweatpants / Episode 2
The concept of a low-key podcast is strained when Rollie gets on the phone with Dr. Gavin Schmidt, NASA’s Senior Climate Advisor to the President. Luckily, Gavin was calling in from an active turkey farm which helped restore the podcast to a calming center. They talk about what an average day is like, the general state of NASA’s climate department, the difficulties of juggling, and more. Throughout the episode, Dr. Gavin Schmidt sticks the landing on so many perfect metaphors it almost feels scripted, but if this episode was scripted, don’t you think Rollie would have had better jokes? Please enjoy this Sweatpants episode unless you need something high key in which case, keep on walking.
