Tegan and Joram explore the world of molecular plant research. How to plants sense their environment? What controls their metabolism? How do they store energy? Come along to an excursion into the very cells of all green things!
Some people say, Joram is too close to still being sick in this episode. Those people are wrong. Joram is just a pretentious stuck up golfer who will never speak again with air freely travelling through his nose. So there’s that.
Who’s got one foot and so many chloroplasts? Well, not this guy but this weird sea slug. We talked about our friends the chloroplast stealing sea slugs before, and today we bring news on them from a recent study.
It wasn’t always easy. It was no walk in the park. But with perseverance, focus and endurance we made it to 100 mostly plant science facts! I think we all deserve a round of applause, a pat on the back and a new hoya for the living room. Enjoy!
We underpromised and overdelivered: You wanted 100 facts, we gave you that and a bit more over the span of 4 episodes. This is batch 2: 26 to 50. We have trees, marine microorganisms, old trees, lasers and a plant that cannot die.
Yay! It is episode 100! To celebrate, we’re bringen 100 mostly plant science facts to you. Because we can’t ask you to listen to us for THAT long, we’re splitting the bulk. So get ready for the first 25(ish) facts from our giant list!
This week we’re inspired by a giant dick rocket making its way into space (and also back for some reason). Before we go back to shopping online to fund the next space mission, we’re talking some awesome plant science. #inspiring
