  • Episode 98 - Species and Speciation
    18 October 2020

    When we study life, past or present, we talk a lot about species, their evolution, their diversity, their extinction, and more. But we don’t often slow down to discuss what we really mean by that. What is a species? How and where do new species arise? It turns out this topic is much more complicated – and controversial! – than it may seem. In this episode, we’ll touch on the basics and discuss why scientists get so worked up about species and speciation.

    In the news: a glass-ified brain, a Cretaceous croc, a long walk, and a sensitive dinosaur.

  • Episode 115b: Diatoms of Lake Baikal
    18 October 2020

    Part 2.

    Diatoms are a major group of algae found in waters all around the world. As photosynthetic phytoplankton, they are hugely important ‘primary producers’, integral to nearly every aquatic food chain. They are responsible for a large proportion of the world’s oxygen production, with estimates ranging between 20 and 50%.

    Diatoms are unicellular plants that produce their cell walls, termed frustules, out of silica. These intricate frustules are what we find preserved in the fossil record and they can contain an absolute wealth of information.

    In this interview, Prof. Anson Mackay, University College London, joins to discuss his work on the diatoms from Lake Baikal, Siberia. We learn why lakes are such special ecosystems and what diatoms can tell us about the world through studies of their palaeoproductivity over thousands of years.

  • Spook-E - Sea Serpents
    18 October 2020

    Welcome... to Spookulative Evolution.

    It’s October once again and time for Spook-E! Each episode throughout this month, we’re choosing a monster and discussing how it – or something like – might evolve biologically, pulling inspiration from critters of the real world. This month’s theme: sea monsters.

    This episode, we tackle a particularly prevalent body shape among sea monsters. How might evolution produce an ocean full of enormous slithery beasts fit for sailors’ nightmares? Our creatures to create this time: sea serpents.

  • Episode 5: Independence Day
    16 October 2020

    Recently, the nation’s prominent newspapers published outlandish-sounding stories about a secret UFO program run by the Pentagon. We talk to retired Navy pilot Ryan Graves who recalls seeing some weird objects and speak with Luis Elizondo, who supposedly ran this Pentagon program. What was the military looking for? What did they find? And what are they hiding?

  • Episode 187: New Zealand's short-tailed bats
    13 October 2020

    With over 1400 bat species around the planet, we decided to cover New Zealand's only native land mammals. Prior to humans, there were only 3 species of mammals, all bats. Once humans arrived, other mammals were introduced like mice, rats, stouts, possums and others. These introduced mammals have been devastating to New Zealand's native wildlife, to include their bats. Join us this week as we cover a very unique species from one of the world's most unique ecosystems.
