Dr. Brian Keating is an astrophysicist at the Center for Astrophysics and Space Sciences at the University of California, San Diego. His specialty is cosmology, and he is the father of the original BICEP project (Background Imaging of Cosmic Extragalactic Polarization) that sought to unravel one of the biggest mysteries surrounding the Big Bang. He is also the author of over 100 scientific publications. We chatted about his early years at age 12 in New York and the spark that ignited his interest in astrophysics. And then we got very geeky on cosmology. Brian recently published a terrific, courageous book about his team’s research, some life lessons, the challenges of scientific research, and he makes some valuable suggestions concerning changes to the Nobel Prize award process. After listening to our chat, you’ll want to read his excellent book.

Calling all avant-garde punks: Apple Music will debut Horses: Patti Smith and Her Band on May 22nd, 2018. A concert film celebrating the 40th anniversary of Horses, this film was produced by Apple’s own Jimmy Iovine. With on-stage and back-stage footage, the show features Patti Smith and her band, Lenny Kaye, Jay Dee Daugherty, Tony Shanahan, and Jack Petruzzelli, who are joined with her guitarist Jackson Smith and Flea. Patti Smith was one of the big names in New York City’s punk scene in the 1970s, occupying what was often seen as the avant-garde edge of that scene. Put another way, Patti Smith is one of those iconic artists well known among musicians. Check out the trailer below for a taste of what this show will be like. If you want to listen to Horses, it’s on iTunes and Apple Music.

Superman just turned 80, and he’s aged pretty well. To celebrate the son of Krypton’s birthday, Apple has an iTunes Store movie bundle loaded with some pretty fantastic animated features.
