If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at forums@fqxi.org with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Just discovered the podcast, I liek it very mcuh but I have one suggetsion for improvement.

When one has a topic where there is not clear agreement why not get the other side on the shwo at the same time, this should illuminate the issues more?

For example, you had an episode on testing quantum gravity witha table top experiment yet you pointed out at the end fo the relevant interview that others (eg at BAckreaction blog) doubted it would work. Why not have them on at the same time and thrash it out?

Another example you had Alex Vilenkin on telling us the universe is not past eternal, yetg Anthony Agguirre the FQXI administrator states the opposite, again why not have them on at the same time?

Thank you for listening tear drop. I think you're absolutely right in both those cases, the segments would have been better if we heard from those with opposing viewpoints. And ideally it would be good to have them on at the same time thrashing it out.

I will definitely try and include more people in the future.
