EUSci Podcast #71

Are you thinking of playing poker for money against a computer? If so, you might want to hold that thought until you hear Producer Chris's account of an all-AI Texas Hold 'em tournament. Our usual dose of biology comes from Jon this week, with news of a method to sequence a baby's genome with only a blood sample from the mother, a technology that could lead to safer prenatal testing methods. Resident animal expert Steph puts her tongue in her cheek for our EUWhat on GPS-enabled sheep, while our discussion looks at a topical question: is psychology a science?

We also have a special treat this week: Producer Chris has been extra busy, roving out to catch self-described 'comedian and geek songstress' Helen Arney and comedy (plus life!) partner Rob Wells, in town for the Edinburgh Festival. Check for the song credits, and also look out for our forthcoming Festival Special.
