    Podcast Episode 81 l Crypto and Climate Change

    Cryptocurrencies have created much discussion among investors due to their ability to diversify portfolios, drive growth and maintain value over a long time. The Bitcoin price has been on an ascending path over the past year and continues to grow. This is good news for hodlers: investors who keep their coins in the same wallets and wait for their worth to increase. However, ever since the very beginnings of the digital finance market, there has been a pressing issue that continues to affect the market: the toll the systems have on the environment.

    Podcast Episode 78 l First ever solar heated house

    Fantastic Women Series

    The term solar energy has become ubiquitous as part of our move towards the larger renewable energy mix. We are all now more than aware of the dire need of cutting down on fossil fuels and moving towards using renewable sources of energy for all of our needs, if we are to keep temperatures conducive to ours (and other species) requirements.  As we move on through the 21st century, more and more of us are using solar panels or solar PV to heat and light our homes.



    But did you know that there was a time when this was a novel idea, when three pioneering women first decided to heat a home with solar energy in December 1948? So we celebrate this amazing innovation and these three fantastic women.

    Podcast Episode 76 l The Olmec Heads

    Podcast Episode 76 l The Olmec Heads

    The Americas have been traditionally considered new territories with civilisations not as old as the rest of the world. Even so, we find fascinating signs of varying cultures in both north and south America. Mesoamerica especially, is replete with different cultures that fascinated archaeologists - and us - ever since their discoveries.



    One of such fascinating archaeological finds are the Colossal Olmec Heads, first brought to light on the eve of WWII by by Matthew Stirling in 1938, although one colossal head was discovered at Tres Zapotes in 1862 by José María Melgar y Serrano but was not well reported.



    The Olmecs were the earliest known major Mesoamerican civilization, that flourished during the Preclassic period from about 1500 BCE to 400 BCE. They were centered in the tropical lowlands of the modern-day Mexican states of Veracruz and Tabasco. The Olmecs are considered the mother culture of Mesoamerica, as they laid the foundations for many of the civilizations that followed.
