Podcast

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 #60

Candles all-round as the EUSci podcast reaches its 60th episode! But we've not rested on our proverbial laurels, and we're back this week with some amazing science for your auditory pleasure. The news spot features new insights into the brains of mice, and the pill that might one day take you from drunk to sober in minutes. Our correspondents investigate how supercomputers have been applied to common puzzles, and spin you a tale of clever new developments in silk manufacture. The EUWhat covers the effect of increased speed limits, and our discussion tackles the thorny issue of open-access publishing.

EUSci Podcast #59

Santa finds snowWe're back with a vaguely Christmas-themed episode of the EUSci podcast, including no snow at Santa Headquarters in Lapland, and more news about the glaciation of Antarctica. But even if you're an inveterate Grinch, you'll find something to like in this podcast. We have news about wooly mammoths and women's orgasms, as well as a EUWhat on a very special kind of race, and a discussion about deadly ferret flu, and whether one should publish dangerous research.

EUSci Podcast #58

We're starting to feel Christmassy already this episode, bringing you a doublet of chilly stories from Antarctica and Mongolia, and with Dave getting all materialistic about some funky new substances. Brand-new podder Alasdair has a story on some novel GM rice, we have news including nocturnal orchids and bionic rabbits, a EUWhat on the misuse of antibiotics, and a discussion close to host Jon's heart- do computer games alter our brains?

EUSci Podcast #57

This episode we stun our listeners with an above average content of physical science. Dave's in his element with a correspondent piece on destructive tactics being employed by chemists, and Jon leaves his bioscience element to tell us about a cloaking device for magnetic fields. The hacks in our news spot tell you about a resurrected protein that could produce some new antibiotics, smart windows and the effect your views can have on your taste buds, and finally our discussion covers the recent controversy over faster-than-light neutrinos. Enjoy.

EUSci Podcast #56

Golden crowned fruit bat (Acerodon jubatus)Back to the usual format this week, and host Jon is happy, for pod regular the fruit bat has returned. No podcasters were embarassed in the making of this episode, however (no fellatio this time), and the bats are instead showing their prowess in navigation- despite the efforts of researchers to confuse them. For the other correspondent piece our in-house pharmacological expert Dave fills us in on new attempts to get substances across the blood/brain barrier, our discussion covers the strange phenomenon of 'wifi refugees', and the EUWhat covers the impact of power on monogamy. What more could you want? Enjoy!
