The EUSci podcast is lovingly crafted (well... carefully crafted, well crafted at least), by our crack team of podcasters every two weeks. Read a bit about the team's exploits below, and tune in or jump on board yourself!

EUSci Podcast #52

The bees are back! Oh yes. This episode examines recent claims that mobile phone usage may be behind the decline of EUSci's adopted fluffy apidologic (?) mascots. In our discussion section we also tackle the effect these devices may have on something closer to home- your brain (though as it turns out we're mostly unconvinced by the data so far). 

But that's not all! in our other correspondant piece Jess tackles the hard science of MS, and in our EUWhat Chris examines what effect believing they're being watched has on small children. Our Feature this week comes courtesy of roving reporter Frank, with an excerpt (in case you missed the special podcast) of his recordings on the British Science Association's recent conference.

This week our host Jen  Wallace guides us through stories about self-assembling RNA squares, sugars that improve antibiotic effectiveness, and much more. So sit back and enjoy our take on the effective square of science stories that made the headlines (or at least the science pages) of newspapers over the past couple of weeks.

EUSci Podcast #50

Yep, that's right, 50 whole episodes of the EUSci podcast (not counting specials). To commemorate the occasion we've got a corker of a show for you, with .... (drum roll...).... a QUIZ. That's right, two teams of current and previous podcasters battle it out to see who remembers the most facts about our archive- and can recount them in the funniest ways. All this interspersed with flashbacks and topped off with some comedy out-takes. Enjoy.
