Emily, Nora, and Natalie discuss how animals get their stripes, why male hormonal birth control is difficult to come by, and electrodes on the brain.
On this week’s show, join hosts Greg, Tyler, Nora, and Chelsea to learn how moths take selfies in dimly-lit clubs, how to turn your windowsill plant into a Frankenstein heat-sensitive conductor, and how thinking like Batman can help us build better microscopes.
This week, we’re showcasing humans at their best, and their worst. Chelsea, Lisl, and Natalie explore human-driven extinction events and do a who’s who of this year’s Nobel Laureates.
This week Emily, Scott, and Lisl host our second ever live show, and discuss how humanity will eventually be wiped from the earth.
In this episode, Lisl, Rupa and Emily discuss how sex determination works (and no, this is not a birds and bees kind of talk), how drugs like dopamine affect our sleep habits, and which famous mathematicians are in our research families.
Natalie, Nora, and Scott dive deep into tumor tissues and deep into space to explore the newest drug delivery mechanisms and the newest neighbor on our galactic block.
How can we better understand the brain? By mapping it using rabies! Dr. Kevin Beier joins hosts Nora, Emily, Tyler, and Ted to explain how mapping the human brain can improve our understanding of dopamine neurons. Plus, Ted shares a breakthrough in superconductor technology and competes with Kevin in our weekly game show.
Join Emily, Scott, and first time host Rupa as they explore the craziness of quantum mechanics through the eyes of neutrinos, and meet some superhero super-cells that can revive your dead brain cells. Also, listen to science rapper Axion’s fire debut about black holes!
