Episode 23 of TOSP is _out_, yo!

This week, aimee and Elf talk Mars, twisted radiowaves, a new livestock virus, the new number of neurons in a human brain (clue: it’s less than you might think), oxygen-generating biomaterial, SpeechJamming, meetings and IQ, using cellphone data following disasters, and the survival of the brightest.

Quite a selection!  We hope you enjoy it :)

Greetings, podcast audience of ours!

This week’s podcast was supposed to be slightly shorter than usual, but then Elf and aimee got into a Discussion or two. There may have been some slight ranting :)

We cover the human brain connectome (peeeerdy), awesome urchin-like nanospheres, a NZ critter app, the world’s first iridescent mammal, a medical/bioinformative challenge, science and weight loss, ranting discussion on the place of scientists these days, and critical thinking. And some events :)

Fun, in other words!
