episode 97: You’re wasting your space-nip! – Lettuce Opium, Dinosaurs, Fairy Lanterns

We’re back from the summer break. If you had guessed that we will be more on point, less rambly and more focussed on plants after our break I have to ask: do you even know us? Anyway, we have cool science facts and not a single cut in the entire episode.

episode 96: Derp – Social Ferns, Salty Greens, Dark Biofilms

Fly like a lemur, sting like an ant in a crow, as my late grandfather used to say to me before I was born. With that in mind, let’s talk about some plant facts. We have new organs, delicious salty plants and a first of its kind almost-social fern.

episode 93: Udder industry is angry – Proximity proteomics, cactus trafficking, graphene confusion

Big udder won’t like this episode – not specifically because we said anything but mostly because they are a joyless bundle of cow farts. In this brand new and highly sought-after episode, we are discussing proximity proteomics, global earthworm abundance.
