    Of plastics & human placenta: meet the "plasticenta" (Pt3/4 - The way in)

    Of plastics & human placenta: meet the "plasticenta" (Pt3/4 - The way in)

    Hellooo, dear listener!

    In the third (of four) part of this episode, I keep telling you the story of a bunch of Italian researchers who are the first to find pieces of plastics smaller than 0.5 cm in human placentas of healthy women.

    Here you'll discover how the darn microplastics manage to sneak into the human body.

    Aaand there's also a GPS for bugs and antigens story...

    Of food production in urban areas: meet the urban horticulture! (Pt 1/2)

    Of food production in urban areas: meet the urban horticulture! (Pt 1/2)

    Hellooo, dear listener!

    In this episode I'll tell you a story about urban horticulture, more precisely the story of how a bunch or researchers proved that a city (specifically Sheffield, England, UK) could potentially feed a big chunk of its own people with veggies and fruits grown in the city itself (on green spaces and even roofs)!

    And there's a very funny fake commercial about the green thumb too.

    Of plastics & human placenta: meet the "plasticenta" (Pt2/4 - Guess the plastics)

    Of plastics & human placenta: meet the "plasticenta" (Pt2/4 - Guess the plastics)

    Hellooo, dear listener!

    In this second part of this multi-part episode, I go on telling you the story of a group of smarty smart Italian researchers who, for the first time ever, finds man-made stuff, specifically microplastics, in human placentas.

    In this episode you'll find how the scientists understand that what they found is actually plastics, what kind of plastics this things are precisely, and, above other things, how much plastic has been made - I mean ever - and how much plastic garbage ended up in the environment so far.

    Aaand there's also a conspiracy theory about 1I/2017 U1 aka ʻOumuamua and some nanoprobes...

    Of plastics & human placenta: meet the "plasticenta" (Pt1/4)

    Hellooo, dear listener. In this multi-part episode I tell you the story of a bunch of Italian researchers who, for the first time ever, find pieces of plastic in human placentas (those of four healthy women who had smooth pregnancies and deliveries).

    In this very part 1 you'll hear how the resourceful scientists from the boot-shaped country collect the samples they need for their study, and what technique they use to analyze them.

    Aaand there's also a joke about a horse, a gamma ray burst and a banana split...

    Ciaz!

    Of Santa Claus, children naughtiness, and virus: a Christmas tale

    Ho-ho-hoooo... Hello, dear listener, welcome to this Xmas episode! I'll tell you two stories this time.
    One  is about how the popular belief according to which Santa doesn't visit naughty children may be or may be not (listen and find out) actually  true.

    The other story, given the year is 2020, is about what would be the consequences of Santa Claus doing his worldwide tour on Christmas Eve while infected by a highly contagious virus.

    Here's the script (with the bibliography): https://tinyurl.com/y784b9e3.
