An Interesting Conversation About The Universe

Any additional comments?

Sometimes, I find myself unsatisfied with Asimov's short stories, but this one was pretty damn good.
This story is simply a conversation between scientist coworkers about life, the universe, its origins, and our place within these constructs.
Asimov goes above and beyond the average sci/fi author with his vast knowledge of everything scientific and philosophical. I actually had to listen to this short, 17-minute story twice before I fully grasped all of the ideas put forward entirely.
Despite it being very heavy on the scientific language used, this is still a great little listen. Definitely worth the 4 or 5 bucks or whatever I paid for it. No regrets.
