The etymology of loot – extremophiles, subtraction bias, jargon

This is technically still a plant podcast even though we talk a suspiciously long time about fancy words and worms. There is also a new favourite plant, an awesome researcher and cool new science from the last week or so!

Let the Whale Fall – headless sea slugs, pollen season, clever cuttlefish

This week, Tegan found the truth about a song from 2012. We also discuss lots of plant and non-plant science from the last week or so. Did you know that cuttlefish are as smart as a toddler?

I am kind of a time traveller – with Aly Baumgartner

We’re super happy to have a special guest with us this week. Aly Baumgartner is a paleontologist with a specialty in paleobotany. With her, we talk about how to find plant fossils, how to analyse them and so much more.

MC Hammer is right about science – Nasturtium, Helia Bravo Hollis, icebergs

On a week that exhausted us both we slowly descend into madness and conspiracy theories. We talk about a cool genus of plants, Mexican botanist Helia Bravo Hollis and the right way to draw icebergs.

Joram and the curse of knowledge – gum arabic, homework, artistic AI

It snowed! Well, not that you can see any of that, but we’re excited nonetheless. We’re also excited about this week’s topics: we’re talking about fabulous Acacias in Central Africa, the road towards more accessible science and a lot of homework
