Sizzling BBQ Science!

This week, we're getting stuck into some sizzling science! It's BBQ time, and we're going to explain the chemistry of cookery, the science of tastes and flavours and we're also going to try to cook something you wouldn't think was possible on the barbie. Plus news of the UK government's plan to battle the nation's bulge, but will it work? Why leaves on the line really is a reasonable excuse for late trains. And what happens when cats and dogs catch coronavirus? Like this podcast? Please help us by supporting the Naked Scientists

Bail Out The Planet

Forget banks, forget airlines - can we bail out the planet? As the world begins to reopen from lockdown, we're asking whether the present 'reset' is a golden opportunity to tackle climate change. Can we cut emissions, and kill the coronavirus, and rescue the economy all at the same time? Plus, in the news: the whereabouts of the UK government's long-awaited contact tracing app; the man who can't see numbers; and the strange star that shouldn't exist... Like this podcast?
