Episode 55 - Coronavirus Antibodies, Anti-Racism, Fall Readiness

Brian Dixon, a Waterloo immunologist and biology professor, recently answered the call to pivot his research focus from the fish we eat to the fight against COVID-19. The work could help in the development of a vaccine. Members of senior administration gather feedback on the University’s anti-racism activities. There are a number of opportunities to support students as the fall term approaches. And the library’s Indigenous peoples in Canada reading list highlights titles that build on current understandings of the experiences of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people in our country.

Heroic Minds Podcast with Ben Fanelli

#95 - Jesse Thistle | Rising Above Trauma

Jesse Thistle is Métis-Cree, from Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. He is an Assistant Professor in Métis Studies at York University in Toronto.

Honestly, I wanted to name this episode, the toughest man you never met, because when you see this intelligent, well spoken, empathetic, caring, loving person today, it is difficult to image the past he had.

Before Jesse landed at York University and became one of Canadas most decorated phD students, he was dealing with mental illness, homelessness, addicted to crack cocaine, paid regular visits to correctional facilities across Ontario, couldn’t read or write, and couldn’t walk because of a staff infection. He says he was the limping homeless person on the side of the road begging for change.

Jesses story and his incredible work makes the passed on, intergenerational trauma from generation to generation so tangible and digestible. In hearing his story you begin to understand the pain, the sadness and the emptiness that dominated his nurturing. It was little experiences of love through his youth into adolescence that kept a tiny spark inside him alive.

After an unsuccessful robbery in 2006 or what a judge claimed was the worst criminal he’d ever seen, Thistle turned himself in to police and entered a drug rehabilitation program.

In 2012 he entered the undergraduate history program at York University.

So yes, lots of questions, lots to unpack, and that is what we will cover in this episode.

Jesse’s book, from the Ashes, is as much educational, as it is empowering. This is the first book that has made me stop reading in awe of what I just read. It is so difficult to fathom where he is today. It truly is a life changing book and may change your life differently than it would your neighbours

Ellen Jorgensen on Biotech’s Potential and the Complexities of Regulation

Biotechnology — the use of biological processes for industrial and other purposes, especially through genetic manipulation of micro-organisms — is a field experiencing massive growth worldwide. For many decades, advances in biology have been made in large academic or corporate institutions, with entry to the field restricted by knowledge and financial barriers. Now, through information sharing and new means of accessing lab space and equipment, a whole new community of amateur scientists are entering the molecular biology space. The emergence of this growing do-it-yourself “biohacker” community raises ethical questions of what work should be allowed to proceed.

In this episode of Big Tech, co-hosts David Skok and Taylor Owen speak with Ellen Jorgensen, a molecular biologist and Chief Scientific Officer at Aanika Biosciences. She is an advocate for democratizing biotechnology by enabling more individuals to have access to lab space and equipment. 

Jurisdictions are taking different approaches to biotechnology, with some, such as the European Union and Africa, being more restrictive than others, such as China. What makes the fragmentation of governance surrounding genetic modification different from fragmentation in internet or tech governance is that biotechnology’s raw material is a global interconnected web of life. A biological modification can have unintended, even disastrous, impacts worldwide. For example, says Jorgensen, “What I’m concerned with is things like gene drives, which is a variety of CRISPR gene editing that [is] self-perpetuating.…So, 100 percent of the offspring, where one of the parents has this gene drive, all have the gene drive. So, it can spread through a population, particularly one with a short lifespan, like mosquitoes, within a very short period of time. And here, for the first time, we have the ability to potentially wipe out a species.” As Jorgensen points out, with such high stakes, we have an “inherent motivation to regulate.” Working together on a global set of standards, and setting aside their own ethical or moral understandings to find a solution that works for everyone, will present a challenge for nations.

144: Gary Bernhardt - TypeScript and Testing

In this episode, Adam talks to Gary Bernhardt about building Execute Program, why he chose to build it as a full-stack TypeScript application, and the implications using TypeScript has on what you need to test.

Topics include:
  • Why Gary decided to write Execute Program as a full-stack TypeScript application instead of using a Ruby or Python backend like he may have traditionally
  • Do you actually have to write less tests if you have a good type system?
  • What does a good type system give you that tests can't give you?
  • Using io-ts to type check incoming data
  • How to think about structuring your code to best take advantage of the benefits your type system gives you and minimize the need to write tests
  • Pushing conditional logic to the core of your system to reduce the number of tests you need to write at the edges
  • The correlation between type errors and behavioral bugs, and how a type system can help you catch mistakes you don't think to test for
  • Do type errors signal that you're missing a test?
  • Structural vs. nominal type systems, and the benefits of structural type systems like used by TypeScript and Go
  • Best practices for type-checking within a function in a structural type system like TypeScript
  • The power of supporting literal types like true or "active" in addition to traditional types

  • Execute Program
  • TypeScript
  • "Are tests necessary in TypeScript?"

Are sequels good for Fandom?

Inspired by our upcoming charity marathon, the Race Against Time, we’re back to talking about sequels and how they change fandom. A fandom can live off of very little material (e.g. Reboot, Chrono Trigger) … but what happens when there is a sequel? Is that a good thing?

In particular, we talk about:

  • How sequels allow for the creation of new communities
  • How sequels ‘change your investment in fandom’
  • How we’re huge hypocrites

And more! All in under thirty minutes.

Plus, we’re on a short hiatus for the Race Against Time, so we’ll be back in September!

Episode Outline

Topics: Fandom exists outside of new content; people love more; sequels allow for new communities; sequels create connections between the past and present; sequels can make the past more relevant; sequels get you re-invested; CHRONO TRIGGER; sequels can create division; you can never go back; not everyone likes sequels and that’s fine; we’re hypocrites.

Where can I get updates?

If you want to follow us on social media, we’ve got you covered:

  • Facebook: facebook.com/fanthropological
  • Twitter: @fanthropologic

And of course, we can be found where all fine podcasts are found (e.g. Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts).

Oh, and here at fanthropological.com

What is the “Race Against Time”?

The Race Against Time is an annual charity livestreaming marathon run by the Nickscast where we beat Chrono Trigger thirteen times to raise money for charity; this year that charity is Trans Lifeline! Tune in on August 8 and 9th from noon until midnight each day. We hope to outdo all of our previous records and raise $2300 USD.

For more details on the event, you can check out the main website at raceagainsttime.io, our Twitch page where we host the stream, or you can follow us on Twitter or Facebook for news about guests, giveaways, and other special surprises! Heck, you can even donate right now!

What is Fanthropological?

Every week, our podcast, Fanthropological, delivers about an hour of fandom-related “fanalysis” covering a different fandom every week and giving you hard data, history, special guests, and, of course, speculation!

We cover topics spanning the gamut of anime, manga, comics, video games, comics, movies, books, television, and, in general, geek culture.

Who are you?

We are the Nickscast! Three products of late-80s / early-90s pop culture who love exploring fandom and everything geek … who also happen to have been best buddies since high school, and all happen to be named Nick.

We started the Nickscast as a labour of love, and as a place to entertain and to discuss our love of fans and fandom. We want to help others learn more about different fandoms, and to create empathy with other fans.

If you want to learn more about us, you can follow us on most social media @thenickscast (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), see all of our projects on thenickscast.com, or email us.
