We did it!

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!

The world’s worst guessing game (100 facts pt. III)

They didn’t think we could do it and then we did. This is batch three of four, with the facts 50 to 75 in our countdown (countup?) to 100 mostly plant science facts.

Wow, they're really doing it (ep. 100 pt. 2)

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.

Episode 100 pt 1: The facts awaken

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 talking about the wood wide web and advantages it brings to those connected to it. Also bird facts, plant facts and gun facts (wtf?)!

episode 98: Praise be the Dick Rocket – Tragopogon, Bethany Nichols, AI protein prediction

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

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 95: Don’t do Chromothripsis, kids! – Epigenetics, NPAAs, quick fixes

I said hey, what’s going on? We’re more or less vaxxed, we’re excited about summer and we’re bringing plant facts! We’re diving deep into epigenetics, discuss climate fixes and talk for a surprisingly long time about marsupial genitalia. The usual.

episode 94: A new hope – monkey puzzles, pride month, sleight of beak

We are very hopeful this week that many bad things will come to an end. Also, we talk about a spiky favourite tree, lots of pride in STEM and many other cool things.
