Sociology: For my next book, I’m exploring the exact point where Society breaks down in case of an apocalyptic event. (Like... say.. the very foundation of the world we live in being revealed as a lie). 

How resistant do you believe that modern day society is to continuing on when our modern day infrastructure is removed? At what point do riots overtake modern governments?

I’ve been doing research into history on my own regarding this, yet I’m sure that you’ll find either cases of resilience or of empires falling that I haven’t yet.

Polar Bears is a super random category and I love it. Please explain during the episode why is there. As horror/dark fantasy author most of my research involves things that get you on the FBI watch list :-) google searches include, but are not restricted to: "best corrosive agent for human bones", "difference between human and animal blood stains" and other fun stuff. I don’t have any questions for you guys, but I’ll be watching :-)

research BPA - Bispenol A.
There is a theory out there that it causes miscarriages and that it cause a reduction in testosterone. In particular causing male frogs to become female frogs.
It’s used in making some plastics and stuff like that. Especially 2 ltr bottles. So by sharing a Coke and a smile you could be wiping out the future children of the world.

I mostly deal in sci-fi, so alas, I don’t think most of the research I need done is in any of your wheelhouses.
But I do have a story on the back burner of my brain that involves a synthetic contagion of some kind that sterilizes the entire human population, Children of Men-style. That could fall under the disease control/outbreak umbrella. If you can come up with anything about how such a plague might be created, how it might effectively spread across the entire world, or how it could be combated, that’d be of interest to me. :)
