On this week’s show, learn about robots, bonding, and monks, but not robots bonding with monks.
This week, we are joined by Dr. Kat Arney, science communicator extraordinaire, who shares her experiences with outreach, knitting DNA scarves, shedding the evil scientist stereotype, and the joys of sharing science whilst naked. Our hosts also cover the latest development involving the coffee plant, and Trisha shares her love of coffee with an all new song!
This week on Goggles Optional, Apocalypse! Hosts Diego, Dave, Chelsea, and Nora discuss the terrifying Ebola outbreak, and in this context, why you might want to watch out for Batman. Next, where have all the bees gone, and can we dress Diego in a bee suit to address this issue? Finally, we share tidbits on giant penguins, more of the California drought, and how Google is getting up close and personal with health data in the name of science!
