Episode 14

Dov Goes to World Makerfaire

What do prosthetic mermaid tails and battle-ready light sabers have in common?

>In this episode,

Friend to No Such Thing and recent NYC high school applicant, Dov Alperin, roves the 2017 World Makerfaire for weird, wonderful, and next-best things, reporting back and sharing his finds. Listeners met Dov in Episodes 2 & 3 at Brooklyn’s Beam Center. This is a great episode if you missed World Makerfaire 2017, have never been, or never miss it, all the same. Prosthetic mermaid tails and battle-ready light sabers both make an appearance in this episode, and Dov asks makers, “how do I get my mom to let me build one of these at home?” Spoiler alert for Dov’s sister: this episode may reveal the contents of a Chanukah gift.
