Lisl, Emily, and Chelsea puzzle over tardigrades, Planck’s constant, and the Ig Noble prizes
This week Emily, Scott, and Lisl host our second ever live show, and discuss how humanity will eventually be wiped from the earth.
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.
Join Trisha, Diego, Lisl, and Tyler to learn how to establish a deep connection with your dog, what’s waving at us from 20,000 leagues under the sea, and why some animals survive while others go extinct.
Did you know chimps can go to war? Maybe the movies aren’t all fiction after all. Our hosts explore the reasons why our furry cousins are on the warpath. Plus, we explore whether diet soda is good for you (and your gut bacteria!) and Nora shares how the retina is inspiring new detection methods for large hadron colliders.
This week, we present a film-noir inspired story of a hunt for an elusive phage virus. We also have our steamiest section ever, as our hosts unveil a new steam producing method that can revolutionize clean energy. Finally, is curing HIV Mission Impossible? Maybe not if we harness the genome editing powers of CRISPR.
Alex, Diego, Trisha, and Lisl interview Holly Moeller to explore the symbiotic relationship between trees and their fungi friends. A rare form of canine cancer is spreading among wild dogs, and Diego gets excited about the never-ending shrimp scampi at Red Lobster.
