Nanotechnology II

January 19, 2022

This week on The Conduct Science Podcast, Mitch and Tom explore what we Na-know about Nanotechnology ;). Delving into the very small where things get weird wouldn't be the same without a tangent about Microsoft and the gamine scene would it? Right? Back on track the boys take a look at some incredible discoveries made this week in Antarctica and also a look at cultured meat. Moving into the facts and meat of the show the boys spend probably too long talking about Spermbots... yes Spermbots... before introducing nanotechnology itself. Mitchell tells us all about nanomaterials and the boys debated the advantages and disadvantages of this technology as it heads into the future. Music: MOKKA

Resolutions and James Webb Space Telescope

Resolutions and James Webb Space Telescope

January 12, 2022

This week on The Conduct Science Podcast, WELCOME TO SEASON 3!!!!!! The boys are back and ready to get on with season 3. What would an episode be without some jumping around to different topics and start as you mean to go on as they say. The boys start out with some of the hottest science news to come out over the winter break covering fusion technology to antimatter discoveries. Mitch kicks off the first show of the year with a rant about congestion charges being implemented which leads to a nice discussion around the topic and how it affects the average person compared to companies who really make a difference. Mitch tells us his secret to success for getting new year’s resolutions completed and the boys discuss how they go about their own resolutions and the ones they have for the year. Lastly, and certainly not least Tom and Mitch talk in depth about the James Webb Space Telescope and extraordinary piece of machinery that will change our understanding of the universe.

Music II: CSP Wrapped

December 8, 2021

This week on The Conduct Science Podcast, join the boys for a musical adventure! Spotify wrapped just released so the boys take the opportunity to have a more chilled week and discuss their musical tastes in the context of some science (maybe). They start off with news of the world as normal where it has been a huge week for physics regarding the quantum world and fusion reactors! Mitch takes us through the Conduct Science Podcast stats over the last year so the boys can take time to thank all of you amazing listeners who make all of this possible! The remainder of the show will allow you to either find some music or judge our two hosts on their musical tastes while they discuss their own stats as well as define some particularly odd genres of music.

Science the Movies Got Wrong

Science the Movies Got Wrong

December 1, 2021

This week on The Conduct Science Podcast, Mitch and Tom take a look at the science the movies got wrong! Before that of course, the boys update you on some news of the week relating to glass in the Atacama Desert, a Xenobot update, and the COVID-19 Omicron variant. Naturally, they move to speaking about cooking and cooking shows after this :) Back on track though Mitch explains why films such as Independence Day, Skyfall, Rampage, and Harry Potter are scientifically inaccurate. Could they really hack a alien ship and could Aragog really be that big? Tom takes us to look at Gravity and Armageddon. There are 168+ scientific inaccuracies in Armageddon so Tom focuses on the biggest three issues. CONTENT WARNING: SPOILERS FOR FILMS THAT CAME OUT 1998-2018!!! You have been warned!

Special and Visual Effects

November 24, 2021

This week on The Conduct Science Podcast, join Mitch and Tom as they dive into the world of special and visual effects! Grab your popcorn and sit back (unless you are driving) as the boys investigate the magic… or science… behind the movies! Mitch introduces three scenarios in which the science behind movies was seriously flawed while the boys tangent about stupid animals in experiments and the great resignation which we are experiencing at this moment. Eventually, when the boys get back on track they explore exactly what special and visual effects are and how they came to be. Tom looks at Lord of the Rings and the Schüfftan process and the amazing tech behind 2001: A Space Odyssey. Mitch explores CGI, motion capture, green screens, and composite imaging!

This week on The Conduct Science Podcast the boys solve the universe?! Stick around toward the end of the episode to find out the boys’ new theory on how space is created! Along the way though join the boys as they give some updates about the goings on of COP26 and other science (or not) news of the world. The boys take a bit of a tangent to talk about ARCANE, the new League of Legends Netflix show, before returning back to the topic. Do you own gold that was forged in the fires of a black hole rather than a star? What is the Cosmic Web and how did it kick start the formation of the universe as we know it? Mitch details what we know about dark matter and dark energy allowing the creation of a revolutionary hypothesis. Find us wherever pods are cast and on twitter @Conduct_science.

Vocal Learning with Dr. Erich Jarvis

Vocal Learning with Dr. Erich Jarvis

November 12, 2021

This time on The Conduct Science Podcast, Tom is joined by one of the most influential vocal learning scientists to have ever lived: Dr. Erich Jarvis. This is an awesome interview that covers vocal learning, the trait that allows humans to sing, speak, dance, play and create music, and fundamentally is responsible for culture. Why is it that humans have a language? Why is it that our closest relatives are unable to speak? Find out here! Tom digs into the ever-evolving world of vocal learning with Dr. Jarvis to find out what it is, why we see it in the animals that we see, and more! They also talk about how COVID has impacted the working scientists and Dr. Jarvis' latest projects that include gene sequencing all mammals and how their work is influencing COVID research.

Mitch celebrated his graduation this week so the boys break down their experiences with exiting the education system. Tom reveals how close the earth was to being hit by an asteroid without us even knowing about it. Lithium-ion batteries are now more effective than ever AFTER they are recycled which is a huge development. COP26 is the talk of the town in the UK and around the world this week but what was said, who made what promises, and will any action actually be taken? Lastly, the 5th of November is on our doorstep, a holiday for us Brits but maybe a strange one. The boys use this as a platform to discuss the science of fireworks!
