I will talk about Dirac and Weyl semimetals, their recent predictions and observations. They have unusual topological properties-- Berry monopoles in the bulk and chopped up Fermi arcs on the surfaces. I will discuss consequences of these topological features on magneto-thermal transport, including predictions of a novel conveyor belt entropy transport between the bulk and surface.
