EUSci Podcast #77

In this, podcast 77 you have rare chance to hear Chris the producer's ninja hosting skills as he presents an amazing collection of sciency goodness. We talk about telomeres and their role in ageing, the mechanics of Parkinson's disease transition and the beautiful and diverse ecosystems of our bellybuttons! There's also a special two-part smelly theme and the news with Mike and Adam.

This will be the last EUSci podcast of the year, but we didn't know that when we were recording. So: seasons greetings and a happy new year to all our listeners.
