Things and the working thereof

Hey, Lou Bloomfield has a show on the Discovery Channel?! He does!

During each one-hour episode, Bloomfield and Unger visit three manufacturing operations around the country, including the factories where workers make Gibson guitars, Jelly Belly jelly beans, New Balance sneakers, Steinway pianos, coffins, sushi knives, bowling balls and more.

"They get in there and build things and dissect things and explain the scientific process behind everyday things," said Jeanine Butler, a Charlottesville resident and the series' producer. "That’s what this show is all about."

I loved Bloomfield's How Things Work class, the staple of science requirements for athletes and liberal arts nerds. Everyone thought it was a gut, but I learned lots of practical Physics. Good on him for getting a show.

Now, who's got cable? I'll bring snacks.
