The guys sit down with Danica McKellar for a stellar conversation about growing up Winnie Cooper, her passion for math and how to give children confidence through education. Danica is WAY smart. She has a theorem named after her for crapsake! This ep takes wonderful turns that you may not expect!

Terrence Malick is, perhaps, unique: a film director who is well-trained in philosophy and who has published an English translation of a book by the great German philosopher Martin Heidegger. But should we see his movies as philosophical statements? In particular, what are we to make of his latest, The Tree of Life, which is set in Texas in the fifties but also takes us back to the creation of the world and the age of the dinosaurs? Metaphysics or pretension? This week, a philosophical investigation of Malick’s work.

Show: The Sound of Young America Guests: Simon Pegg
Simon Pegg joins us to talk about nerd rants, his philosophy on zombies, and his close-knit relationship with colloborator and friend Nick Frost.
He’s best known as the actor, writer, and director whose guiding hands have been involved in British TV comedy Spaced and films Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Paul.
His new memoir follows his own journey as the nerdy everyman; Nerd Do Well: A Small Boy’s Journey to Becoming a Big Kid is out now.
Actor Cillian Murphy is a scene stealer and some of his best known roles are villains, such as the scarecrow in “Batman Begins.” However, his Guest DJ set is filled with moments of pure joy. From the “instant hit of summer” provided by Stevie Wonder to the first track he ever learned to play on guitar, he digs into his childhood for some favorites. He is also inspired equally by the imagination of Frank Zappa and the collaborative philosophy of Broken Social Scene. Cillian stars in the upcoming Chris Nolan film “Inception” alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, which opens July 16.
