This week, Lisl, Nora, and Chelsea celebrate with a special July 4th Beer Goggles episode. Learn how to make people see red, a more accurate representation of the history and practice of physics, and listen to Nora and Chelsea go head-to-head to determine once and for all what element is the most legit.
Diego, Lisl, and Scott bring you the buzz about bees and electric fields, another kind of buzz from 5000 year old beer, and what ancient DNA tells us about the domestication of dogs.
Join Trisha, Nora, and Natalie for a discussion on extinction in Antartica in apocalyptic times, how accurate fMRI signals are at reading minds, and the return of the Game Show!
This week, GO is all about the screw ups of big biotech companies. Join Diego, Nora, and Emily as we cover genome data fights, drug trial oversights, and an example of a delusional leader flying too high.
Trisha, Nora, Scott, and Natalie have a beer and talk about science, as scientists are wont to do while drinking. Learn about Natalie’s research on human evolution, what’s up with the White House Initiative on the microbiome, and the connection between black holes and quantum mechanics.
Do you need a better and more science-inspired way to store your cat photos? Feeling lonely as an Earthling in a galaxy devoid of other life forms? Need a reason to stop hating insects? Chelsea, Nora, and Scott have you covered.
Join hosts Diego, Nora, and Chelsea as they discuss an under-appreciated isotope on the Moon, the discovery of a new branch in the tree of life, and how mice backup their memories.
This week, hosts Nora, Chelsea, and Diego talk lead-cleaning microbots, how LSD messes with your brain, and thousand-year-old-teeth.
Diego, Scott, and Chelsea discuss how chewing food shaped human evolution, AlphaGo’s victory over humanity in board games, and how to reset an electron. Plus, our weekly hot start and Goggles gabbles.
Goggles Optional is thrilled to present our first podcast in front of a live audience! Trisha, Nora, Scott, and Dave discuss one of the brightest supernovas ever discovered. Then, we explain how brains are connected to other brain cells and potentially machines. Plus, we invite audience members to join us for our weekly game show and two science parody songs by the Shifty Paradigms!
