1: Unit Conversions
Since the dawn of thinking, mankind has been measuring things. If humans are going to tell each other about all the great counting and measuring they have been doing, they need to put it in terms that others can understand. In Neutrium's first episode, Trevor and Matthew discuss unit conversions. With Trevor Walker & Matthew Kidd.
