    49: Things in Sci-Fi That Bug Us

    49: Things in Sci-Fi That Bug Us

    Rob and Joe dive deep into the little things that bug them the most in the Sci-fi genre, and, of course, they also talk about bees. A story or two about whales learning how to avoid whaling ships and gorillas being taught to fear death make for a well-rounded episode, if they do say so themselves.

    Pollen, that scourge of Spring and Fall! What is it, exactly? What does it do? Why do they cause allergies and how do scientists identify plants based on their pollen?

    47: Bee Biology

    47: Bee Biology

    Joe and Rob wax eloquent about our little wax making friends, the honeybee. Rob talks about his tricked-out hive in which he has installed some electronics. They then go on an excursion into the world of Arduino before getting to the meat of the discussion: the biology inside the hive. From bee guts to bee parasites, get ready to bee amazed.

     Joseph and Dr. Carter discusses the Odyssey successfully landing on Mars, Rob’s submitted COVID-19 paper, and how eyes work—everything from biochemistry to optics to geometry to image processing to the eyes of big cats and giant squid! We’d love to have you join us for another quest on Equinox!

Binge-Listening Material For Science Noobs

Equinox has really re-ignited my interest in the sciences! If only I lived at the edge of the universe; then I could listen to more episodes sooner.

Buckle your restraint mechanisms for nonstop free-ranged conversations between science enthusiasts nerding out hardcore about genetics, physics, astronomy, history of science, archaeology, data pushing the limits of modern science, and more!
