Diego, Lisl, Emily, and Nora turn their eyes to a report that Facebook altered users’ news feeds for a study on emotional contagion. Speaking of eyes, our hosts discuss a way to treat lazy eyes with exercise, and Nora shares a way to monitor wind patterns. Plus, find out what animal has the strongest bite, and go bananas for a monkey-themed game show round!
This week, our hosts get powered up on the topic of cells! Were scientists nuts by believing stress can create new cells? Can stress change white blood cell counts? Join our diabolical hosts this week for an electrifying discussion that spans power, immunity, and regenerative medicine. Plus, why in the world would Tesla be releasing their patents, and what is in their patents anyway? Get fired up for all that plus our weekly Hot Start and Game Show!
Trisha, Emily, Greg, and David welcome Dr. Mahalia Miller to discuss her work on monitoring earthquakes using Twitter.

The group also discusses a clinical test to rule them all (hint: it’s initials are NGS). And don’t miss an awesome new song by Trisha and Emily!
