Covid Science: Test, Track, Trace

This week, testing, tracing and monitoring. How does a covid test actually work? Do antibodies to covid mean immunity? And the tech to monitor covid symptoms from home. Plus in the news, as lockdowns go local: how are they doing it Down Under? Why planting trees to capture carbon is worse for the planet, and the sparrows changing their tunes! Like this podcast?

Covid Science: Test, Track, Trace

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?

Let's Get Quizzical: Summer Science Pub Quiz

Under Our Feet: What's Inside Earth?

This week, put on your hard hat and steel capped boots: we're journeying to the centre of the earth! From the soil at the surface to the magnetic molten iron at the core, we're delving into what's going on inside our planet. Plus in the news - How llamas can help us to combat Covid-19, archaeology on a quad bike, and Einstein is proved right again in a test of extreme gravity... Like this podcast?

Under Our Feet: What's Inside Earth?

The Fifth State of Matter

Come celebrate the 25th anniversary of some Nobel-prize-winning science: the fifth state of matter, a strange quantum soup known as a Bose-Einstein condensate. What is it, and why is it at the cutting edge of physics? Plus, in the news: signs that 2 metre social distancing is twice as effective as one metre; an app that can help you avoid encountering COVID-19 when you shop; and two astronauts blast off to the International Space Station...

COVID-19: How to Vaccinate a Planet

COVID-19: How to Vaccinate a Planet

Life in the New Normal

This week, we're asking what will the "new normal" look like? We delve into the future of healthcare, education and transport. Plus in the news, loss of smell is added to the list of coronavirus symptoms, but why has it taken so long? And how safe is it for schools to reopen? Like this podcast?

Life in the New Normal

Publishing & Politics: How Science Gets Made

What's a scientific paper? What's peer review? And when governments say they're "following the science" during this pandemic, what does that actually mean? We're figuring out how science goes from results in a lab to become public information, or even national policy. Plus, in the news: we rate the security of the UK's new COVID-19 tracing app; doctors that didn't know they'd been infected with coronavirus; and should we really be bailing out airlines?
