Sci Guys

By The Sci Guys

Sci Guys is a podcast all about the weird and unbelievable ways that scientists learn about the world around us. Each week, Corry (@notcorry) tells the story of a particularly strange scientific study while his friends Jamp (@jampkin) and Luke (@lukecutforth) do their best to derail the conversation with questions, jokes, and whatever nonsense they can think of.

Having a prize for great scientific achievements is certainly an important thing, but when it comes to the crazy, weird, and wonderful stories (that still make you think) there’s the Ig Nobel Prize!

32: Eugenics

If you had the chance to change your child’s genes, would you? Is that Eugenics? Those are the questions we debate today! Gene editing has come to the point that we can choose almost any feature we like for our unborn children. As usual, science has run far ahead leaving important ethical questions behind. Jurassic Park have been onto something...

30: Rat Utopia

Do rats go to heaven? The answer is yes, but it’s not as nice as you might think! Corry tells the story of John B Calhoun, a man who ran massive, years long experiments on rats and mice to really see what made them tick.

29: Anti-Vax or Anti-Facts?

Do vaccines cause autism? That’s just one of the questions we’re debating this week. We get into the scientific roots of the Antivax movement, and figure out whether it’s really that dangerous to choose to leave a child unvaccinated.  Whether you believe in vaccinations or not, there’s something for you in this episode. Have a listen, and hopefully you’ll learn something about both sides of this debate.
