Hello, everyone, and welcome to the first ever official TOSP episode.
Each week, your hosts, Scibloggers Elf Eldridge (Just So Science) and aimee whitcroft (misc.ience), will be bringing you 20-30 minutes of some of the amazing science-related interestingness across which we came in the preceding week, including some of the Sciblogs posts which made us think. Sometimes we’ll chat with fellow Scibloggers, or interview other scientists on relevant topics. Sometimes we may devote an entire episode to something specific. Other times, it’ll be a mixture of links and science tidbits from around the world.
We hope you enjoy it! Of course, please do feel free to contact us with suggestions, thoughts, comments, questions, events and anything else. After all, podcasts are supposed to be interactive :)
This week’s podcast covers everything from moon pizza bases to memristors which use organic molecules. From Carl Sagan to New Zealanders revolutionising the science marketplace in the US. From dinosaur fights (yes, you heard us) to hummingbird love songs. And, of course, a whole bunch more.
In addition, full links to everything mentioned below:
