The Mad Ones

Episode 116 - Splitting Atoms and Breaking Bread with Dr. Robert Hayes


This week, we are joined by Dr. Robert Hayes, a PhD and professor of Nuclear Engineering at North Carolina State University, and TikToker. Dr. Hayes is a man of science and faith. Many find this to be an impossibility, yet if you know anything about history, you know that the church pushed forth scientific discovery for centuries. Join us to talk about his life, his work, and about nuclear energy and whether or not it is the best way forward.
