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, 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.
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.
Natalie, Chelsea, and Emily discuss THE ORIGINAL SILLY WALK, patented by Homo erectus, and why sunflowers are so aptly named (hint: it’s not because they’re yellow!). Plus, Emily brings you Olympic technology fun facts!
Scott, Ted, and Natalie discuss if a tiny cyborg is alive, cannibalism among Neanderthals, and a planet with three suns.
Join Lisl, Trisha, and Ted to learn all about menstruation in model(organism)s, how to name a new element, and how to cure multiple sclerosis by deleting the immune system.
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!
