Worm twitter is angry – Sunflowers, worm discrimination, beautiful snails

Don’t you dare disrespect our favourite model organism, Arabidopsis. No wait, we love tobacco and hate Arabidopsis. No! Both are the WORST, we love Chlamydomonas above everything else! Or were we team sunflower?

Penguins propelling poo – self-drilling seeds, arctic explorers, and some plant science

You know the drill: we talk about our favourite plant (it’s drilling itself into the ground), a cool researcher (she travelled to Antarctica to study lichen), a cognitive bias (the end will please you) and fun stuff (a lot of it). Please enjoy.

Not red means not recording

We talk about how scientists developed a way to use soap bubbles to pollinate plants!

There is an important part in recording a podcast and that is hitting the record button. As one of us missed that crucial input for this week’s episode, the sound is a bit… not great. Don’t worry though, the stories we tell are making up ten-fold for the lack audio quality. We talk about how scientists developed a way to use soap bubbles to pollinate plants!

WEIRD, STRANGE, CRINGE

First things first: Black Lives Matter. After a short break, we’re back with a new episode, we first address the issue at hand of police brutality against people of colour and what it means to us as white plant scientists.

First things first: Black Lives Matter. After a short break, we’re back with a new episode, we first address the issue at hand of police brutality against people of colour and what it means to us as white plant scientists. To provide a little diversion from the horrors of the current situation of the world, we also talk about our favourite science and plant related fun facts.

Spinach and strawberries – artificial photosynthesis at the interphase of nature and technology

This week, we’re diving into a science paper that was hard to miss. It’s all about creating artificial photosynthesis using spinach chloroplasts. We also talk about our favourite genome duplication events and news in the world of science.
