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!
Joram is sick again but it won’t stop us from talking about plants. This time, it’s more plant adjacent: we’re talking about a weird new way some bacteria do photosynthesis. Also lots of clever animals and a tale of paleobotanical experiments.
This week, we’re talking about the link between the constructor of fountains, Neptune, and a small seagrass in the Mediterranean sea. Also more on X-ray microscopy and a discussion on who deserves to be on the author list (it’s Joram).
Hi! Heads up, there is a long spoiler for Don’t look up at the beginning. Did you know that we have chapters to quickly skip ahead? Now you do. Also, we talk about a very poisonous plant and how to move owls!
We just read “Entangled Life” by Merlin Sheldrake and now we’re considering turning this little show into a fungal podcast. Before that happens, here is an episode of all things we love about fungi and plants together.
