Making his third appearance on Lab Out Loud, we welcome Rhett Allain back to the show.  As an Associate Professor of physics at Southeastern Louisiana University, Rhett is also an avid blogger for Wired Science.  In addition to his consultant work for MythBusters, Rhett has recently added another impressive accolade to his resume: Technical Consultant for the TV show MacGyver (2106).  Rhett joins us to discuss Macgyver, his continuing role in screen science, and we also tackle the importance of critical thinking skills.
