Episode 47: Planet of the Chimps

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.

Episode 31: Spy encryption

Diego, Lisl, Nora, and Greg get spicy this week in a discussion about Bonds (of the James and chemical type), Quantum encryption, and how hot wings might actually contribute to lengthening your lifespan. The hosts cover recent initiative by the US government to explore storage solutions for radioactive waste (space elevator, anyone?), why cell phones are giving migratory birds a headache, and the real reason to explain decreased gray matter in parts of the brains of men. Finally, if you are chronically stressed, bullied, or cynical, you might want to listen up to how you are impacting your health. No, it’s not good news!
