We talk to Carl Zimmer, New York Times columnist and author of 13 books about science about his latest book She Has Her Mother's Laugh: The Powers, Perversions, and Potential of Heredity.
Episode 48 features Ryan Zeigler, a planetary scientist and the lunar sample curator, who talks about the moon rocks brought to Earth during Apollo, the facilities that keep them, and what we're still learning from them. This episode was recorded on February 14, 2018.
In February and March, many Universities across the United Kingdom were affected by the largest wave of industrial action to hit the sector for many years. For this episode of the Global Lab, we spoke to Tony Brown and Sean Wallis from UCL's University and College Union branch about why the strikes took place. To give you a sense of what it felt like to be out on the streets during the dispute, we conducted interviews on the picket line and made binaural audio recordings of the two marches that took place in central London during the strikes. Binaural recordings are recorded using two microphones to create the illusion of a 3D soundscape. Best listened to on headphones… --- Produced by Valerio Signorelli and Duncan Hay ---

Welcome to the first episode of the newly revamped Heredity podcast! What is the journal Heredity? How conserved is the molecular basis of spider silk? And what effect does the creation of human-made river barriers have on the genetic diversity of low-mobility fish populations? Tune in to hear discussions with the editors behind the journal and the people behind the research in June's edition of Heredity. Featured articles: Conservation of a pH-sensitive structure in the C-terminal region of spider silk extends across the entire silk gene family https://www.nature.com/articles/s41437-018-0050-9 Artificial barriers prevent genetic recovery of small isolated populations of a low-mobility freshwater fish https://www.nature.com/articles/s41437-017-0008-3

Most of the stuff in the universe is invisible dark matter, if our theories are correct. So why is it so hard to find?

Tut Deutschland zu wenig für saubere Gewässer? Die EU-Kommission hat sie vor knapp zwei Jahren gegen die Bundesrepublik geklagt, mit dem Argument: die Bundesregierung setze die Nitratrichtlinie der EU nicht richtig um. Heute entscheidet der Europäische Gerichtshof in dieser Sache
This week: New research shows a 6-month treatment for breast cancer is nearly as successful as the previously-standard 12-month course; the surprising effects that clay can have on your body; and a look into new studies that give new reasons why dark chocolate is good for you.

Brand new species were hiding in plain sight—in the vast, but incompletely catalogued collections of natural history museums.
The kelp revolution has reached the U.S. and it could change everything (including how cows fart).
What do organic molecules on Mars tell us about how the planet works and the possibility of life on the planet?
Patrick Cooke and Dan Brett present Led Zeppelin's "Going to California" I heard this version of "going to California" while visiting my local pub and was knocked out by this arrangement. Many people judge a voice according to its range and power, but I think Patrick's does something unique to this song. The acoustic guitar arrangement enhances the melody of the song for a more bluesy feel. It's a slower version of the song and different to anything I have heard here. Take a listen This video can be found here: https://youtu.be/GLuh56JvkGk Recorded at El Chivo, Nosara, Costa Rica. Audio: Martyn Stewart Camera: Martyn Stewart Camera 2: Noeleen Rooy Stewart.
