episode 134: The broccoli-cauliflower-conundrum

We are back from the break! We are completely different but also pretty much the same so come along and learn about mucus seeds, pink cotton, dandelion physics and a play performed by two very much non-actors.



episode 133: Bishop’s balls

While plant science missed out on yet another Nobel prize, you are not missing out on yet another great plant science episode. We have a hairy balled plant, some evidence about ATP and a whole Can of Spinach!

episode 128: It’s not you, it’s us

Sometimes, technology makes our lives better. On other occasions, it makes it much harder. This week was one of those times, the recording equipment failed on us. We still did a fun show full of cool plant science, it just doesn’t sound as nice. Sorry!
