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.
Scott, Chelsea and Diego discuss a sneaky peek into the pyramids, a rockin’ rant about the geology of Yosemite, and a Splice-y look at how cutting up genes affects your health.
On this week’s show, hosts Greg, Ted, and Dr. Kat discuss an application of quantum computing that’s making waves, why genome-editing biotech might not be a fountain of youth, and how bears are making global warming bearable for berries.
Join Dave, Ted, and Scott to learn about how stars explode, the REAL reason why birds don’t get shocked on power lines, and researchers’ latest breakthrough in the fight against the Zika virus.
An all-female cast of Chelsea, Dr. Trisha, and Dr. Kat tell us about an epic Bronze Age battle (that’s not the Iliad), the relationship between vegetarianism and climate change, and a potential HIV therapeutic that fights virus with virus.
This week, join Emily, Ted, Scott, and Diego as they peek behind the curtain about the genes you REALLY need to survive as a human, metals that melt, and how your immune system might use fossilized viruses to remember potential foes.
Diego, Lisl, Emily, and Ted discuss one of the biggest story from last week: the discovery of Einstein’s gravitational waves (4:42)! Join our hosts as they discuss what are these waves, what do they sound like, and why they are like bouncing on a trampoline. Then, Lisl shares how the parasite toxoplasma can inflict chimps (20:52) and Emily gets excited about cancer in naked mole rats (24:30).
