A scientific adventure through the land of molecular legos, the dystopian oceans of the post-climate change future, and the colorful frontiers that may open to the colorblind after a new gene therapy treatment.
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.
Lisl, Rupa, and Scott discuss an impossible rocket engine, fetal alcohol syndrome, and a promising genetically modified tobacco plant.
Natalie, Nora, and Chelsea share their professional and unprofessional opinions on some of the hottest new research in climate science. Actually, scratch that – it’s mostly unprofessional, because this week is a free-wheelin’, beer-drinkin’ Beer Goggles!
In honor of Halloween, hosts Natalie, Lisl, and Scott go scientific trick or treating. We find out whether or not the universe is expanding, if GMO crops are saving the world, and if the spectre Patient Zero truly spread a deadly disease to an entire continent.
This week Charlie, Rupa, and Chelsea talk about the (literally) cool geological features of Pluto, the hot hot topic of climate change and forest fires, and why the placebo effect is real and totally okay to ascribe to.
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.
