    Introducing The Show About Titanic (Bonus Episode)

    I've been helping to produce a new podcast called The Show About Titanic. It's hosted by my friend Edward who knows everything there is to know about the Titanic. This episode is called "Halomonas Titanicae with Bhavleen Kaur" and all of you science fans are going to love it! Bhavleen Kaur is a Senior Scientist at the Ontario Science Centre. Dr. Kaur’s doctoral research into microbial life on the wreck of the Titanic led to the discovery of a new bacterial species, Halomonas titanicae. On this episode of The Show About Titanic, she describes to Edward how she got interested in these metal-munching bacteria.

    074: Forensic Science with Mike Haag

    Over on my other podcast, The Show About Politics & History, we've been visiting The Sixth Floor Museum to understand what happened when President John F. Kennedy visited Dallas in 1963. Before listening to this episode, I'd recommend listening to those episodes.

    Mike Haag is a forensic scientist for Forensic Science Consultants and a senior forensic scientist and supervisor at a crime laboratory in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Mike started learning about forensic science at an early age from his father, Luke. On this episode of The Show About Science, Mike explains how modern science can debunk the many conspiracy theories surrounding the assassination of JFK.

    You can listen to the episodes recorded at The Sixth Floor Museum here: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-show-about-politics-history/id1450732353

    A quick note for parents. This episode talks about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy which may not be suitable for younger ears.
