    #3-10 - Climate Change: Extreme Weather Events and Biggest Misconceptions - ft. Prof. Dr. Bjorn Stevens

    In this episode, Bea continues her conversation with Prof. Dr. Bjorn Stevens, managing director at Max Planck für Meteorologie and a director of The Atmosphere in the Earth System.

    Today, they focus on climate change and discuss in great detail some of the most common misconceptions surrounding the topic. They talk about extreme effects of the weather, the difference between 1.5 and 2 degree increase in global temperature, the current state and future prospects of nuclear power, using solar and wind power to create energy, and more.

    Bjorn also talks about his view on the way climate change is treated by the media and politicians and shares his outlook for the future.

    #3-09 - Clouds, Atmosphere, and Climate Change - ft. Prof. Dr. Bjorn Stevens

    #3-09 - Clouds, Atmosphere, and Climate Change - ft. Prof. Dr. Bjorn Stevens

    In this episode, Bea talks to Prof. Dr. Bjorn Stevens, managing director at Max Planck für Meteorologie and a director of The Atmosphere in the Earth System, about clouds and water vapour, and the effect they have on climate change.

    Bjorn talks about the reason why he decided to switch from electrical engineering to studying clouds and explains why clouds are relevant for climate change. He talks about greenhouse gases and describes what role different types of clouds play in the greenhouse effect and in controlling the temperature, as well as how the temperature, in turn, impacts cloud formation.

    Bjorn explains absolute and relative humidity, the double-sided effects of air pollution, and factors that influence the amount of water vapour in the atmosphere.

    Bjorn and Bea also discuss approaches to modelling climate change and the reliability of climate change models.

    #3-08 - Kitchen Lab - ft. Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Markus Antonietti

    In this episode, Bea talks to Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Markus Antonietti, a director of Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, about his kitchen lab and the projects that are carried out within it.

    Markus tells the history of the kitchen lab, from its conception as a teaching tool for children to its current form as a research space, where kitchen utensils and cooking techniques can be used for chemical processes, and why this is a way toward more sustainable and practical chemistry.

    Markus talks about the setup of the kitchen lab and describes a number of projects that have been carried out within it as well as some that are still ongoing, including creating a circular economy of wood, the extraction of resveratrol in the kitchen environment as a replacement for BPA, encapsulation processes of perfume and oils for cosmetics, and improving the texture of vegan burgers. Markus highlights the numerous advantages as well as some limitations that his kitchen lab has and explains how it fits into the Max Planck Research Community.

    #3-07 - The Effect of Time Restricted Eating on the Circadian Rhythm - ft. Prof. Satchin Panda

    #3-07 - The Effect of Time Restricted Eating on the Circadian Rhythm - ft. Prof. Satchin Panda

    In this episode, Bea continues the conversation with Professor Satchin Panda, from the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, this time focusing on the effect that time-restricted eating has on our circadian rhythm.

    Satchin gives a detailed introduction to the concept of time-restricted eating (consuming all your daily meals within a specific time window), the numerous positive effects that it has on our health, why it leads to significant improvements in our lifestyle, and how one can go about implementing it into their daily schedule. Satchin also discusses how the concept of intermittent fasting relates to time-restricted eating and compares their benefits and challenges.

    To summarise, Satchin introduces his 6-step formula that allows one to stay at their peak optimum performance during the day, as well as to get deep restorative sleep at night.

    If you would like to know more about Prof. Panda’s research, check out his lab’s page here: https://panda.salk.edu/. You can also follow Prof. Panda on twitter: @SatchinPanda and Instagram: satchin.panda.

    To better understand your circadian rhythm, check out Prof. Panda’s page: https://mycircadianclock.org or download the app “mycircadianclock”

    You can purchase Prof. Panda’s books “The Circadian Code” and “The Circadian Diabetes Code” here: https://www.amazon.de/-/en/Satchin-Panda-PhD/dp/163565243X

    #3-06 - Effect of Sunlight and Sleep on our Circadian Rhythm - ft. Prof. Satchin Panda

    #3-06 - Effect of Sunlight and Sleep on our Circadian Rhythm - ft. Prof. Satchin Panda

    In this episode, Bea talks to Professor Satchin Panda, from the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, about circadian rhythm and its connection to light and sleep.

    Satchin gives an introduction to circadian rhythm, a mechanism that allows us to stay at our optimal physical and intellectual health during the day, as well as to repair and rejuvenate in the night. He emphasises the numerous health problems, short- and long-term, that can be caused by disrupting one’s circadian rhythm but also highlights the ways, in which we can take control back.

    Satchin talks about the role of light, specifically bright blue light, in resetting the circadian rhythm and the discovery of melanopsin, retina sensor that sends the information about the light to a master clock in our brain. Bea and Satchin also discuss how red light might help us to fall asleep, why the role of melatonin in sleep seems to be overestimated, and the role of “sleep debt” in our lives.

    #3-05 - Sustainable Farming from a Farmer's Perspective - ft. Chiel van Dijk

    #3-05 - Sustainable Farming from a Farmer's Perspective - ft. Chiel van Dijk

    Farmers feed us and feed the world. In the current agricultural society, it is crucial to understand how farming can be more sustainable in terms of energy input/output and agroforestry (the use of land, in which trees and shrubs are intentionally integrated into crop and animal farming systems) offers a number of environmental, economic, and social benefits.

    In this episode, Srinath and Leonie talk to Chiel van Dijk, owner of the Frecklinghof farm in the North of Germany. They talk about what sustainability means for a farm, whether there is such a thing as more or less sustainable, how Frecklinghof came to be, and how Chiel measures the energy output and input of his farm.

    Chiel talks about Agroforestry, the way it is implemented on his farm in particular, and the advantages and challenges it can bring to farming in general. Chiel emphasises the importance of small farms as the feeders of people, distinguishing them from the large farms that tend to be geared towards animal feed.
