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!
In this episode, Natalie, Emily, and Ted discuss super small data storage using chlorine atoms, a forest in need of kelp, and the complex connection between gut bacteria, diabetes, and metabolism!
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.
