And by cats I mean dogs

This week, we’re talking about the worst favourite plant ever, keystone genes and how surfers can be scientists. Also: your dog’s breed doesn’t mean what you think it means.

A cat gap in the resumé

Mysteriously we came back yet again for more plant facts. This week, we’re checking a plant’s pores, take about unextinct flowers and why some plants eat the very insects that pollinate them.

Eggplants and Pipettes

It’s our belated easter episode! We talk about the Queen of Vegetables, the mighty eggplant. We filled almost an hour with eggplant facts, factoids and words that merely resemble a fact from a distance.

COWpeaMILK – it’s full of plantibodies!

We finally found a way to market non-dairy milk as milk without upsetting any consumer or dairy company: cowpea milk. Plus: we discuss plantibodies, micronutrients and, weirdly enough, ocelot pee.

WHY IS THE DOG IN THE GREENHOUSE? (and where does the bee keep his oils?)

We begin this week with a looooong discussion about the movie “Little Joe”. It’s fun (talking about the movie, not the movie itself. Don’t watch it). Also we have new research about epimutagenesis, grain-free ice cream and the benefits of weeds.

(Stop) trying to make photoaerogens happen, it’s not going to happen

Have you heard of fynbos? This week, we discuss how the fynbos ecosystem withstands turning into a forest, what problems arise from academic bullying and why you’d pump nectar out of a flower.

Dinosaurs in car parks

Joram is sick again but it won’t stop us from talking about plants. This time, it’s more plant adjacent: we’re talking about a weird new way some bacteria do photosynthesis. Also lots of clever animals and a tale of paleobotanical experiments.
