The Sky's The Limit: Top Chef Boston finalists Gregory Gourdet and Doug Adams judge the first-ever Live Wire Bottom Chef competition, astrophysicist Sara Seager fills us in on the heated discussions behind naming planets, and Loch Lomond fill the hall with beautiful harmonies.

Gregory Gourdet & Doug Adams
This season's Top Chef: Boston should've been titled "Top Chef: Boston, brought to you by Portland, Oregon," with two of the final three chefs hailing from Portland. Gourdet, first runner-up, is the Executive Chef at Departure and an ultra marathon runner. Adams was second runner-up and works as Chef du Cuisine at Imperial.

Sara Seager
Professor Seager is an astrophysicist and a pioneer in the field of exoplanets, or planets that orbit stars that aren't the sun. Dubbed an "astronomical Indiana Jones," her current quest is the holy grail of astrophysics, a true Earth twin.

Loch Lomond
Portland's Loch Lomond has been through many iterations, but it's always been anchored by the haunting vocals of singer/multi-instrumentalist Richie Young. Listening to this sextet's latest album, Dresses, will make you think you have a tiny baroque orchestra with a pop bent in your living room. You don't.
