An all-female cast of Chelsea, Dr. Trisha, and Dr. Kat tell us about an epic Bronze Age battle (that’s not the Iliad), the relationship between vegetarianism and climate change, and a potential HIV therapeutic that fights virus with virus.
Can bacteria form a grass root revolution against their human oppressors? Dave, Ted, and Emily cover how even small amounts of antibiotics can lead to large scale antibiotic resistance by bacteria。 Plus, Ted share a discovery from the middle of the galaxy and Emily takes us on a quest to find a vaccine for the Dengue virus。
Diego, Scott, and Chelsea discuss how chewing food shaped human evolution, AlphaGo’s victory over humanity in board games, and how to reset an electron. Plus, our weekly hot start and Goggles gabbles.
This week, join Emily, Ted, Scott, and Diego as they peek behind the curtain about the genes you REALLY need to survive as a human, metals that melt, and how your immune system might use fossilized viruses to remember potential foes。
Goggles Optional is thrilled to present our first podcast in front of a live audience! Trisha, Nora, Scott, and Dave discuss one of the brightest supernovas ever discovered。 Then, we explain how brains are connected to other brain cells and potentially machines。 Plus, we invite audience members to join us for our weekly game show and two science parody songs by the Shifty Paradigms!
