Episode 43: Evolutionary Taste

This week is all about the animals! First we make a Life Aquatic-style dive into the ocean to find the unseen consequences from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Next, are you hungry listeners, and have you ever wondered what would you serve a hummingbird that you wouldn’t serve a dinosaur? Finally, we talk about… talk! We cover recent work that has better modeled both human and animal communication.

Episode 22: The Cuckoo Ambassadors

Lisl, Trisha, Diego, and David welcome Dr. Joe Rodgers and converse on adult stem cells, muscle repair, working out, and fighting mountain lions. The group also explores how the parasitic cuckoo bird can actually benefit its host. Plus, Lisl rants about anemones, what caused The Great Dying, and we introduce a new type of game show question!
