Ellis Robinson and Daniel Tkacik are Ph.D candidates at Carnegie Mellon University. When they’re not in the lab or studying, they’ve found time to produce and host a podcast called I Wonder. Each episode starts with a question, which Ellis and Daniel attempt to answer within a half hour. In this clip, they start with a story of Ellis cursing the hills of Pittsburgh on his single speed bike and wondering about the highest point in Pittsburgh.
