Michael and Stephanie discuss a team of scientists cultivating bacteria that can create spider silk for all sorts of awesome uses.

Michael mentions a ‘better concrete’, which he heard about on EARTH: The Cement Ban episode of Flash Forward pod. A cool podcast about the future you should definitely check out. David Stone is the inventor of Ferrock.

Michael’s wife’s spider was named Shelby. He was/is an Antilles pinktoe tarantula and was quite blue when he was younger.
