In this episode for you: Julia Nestlen and our guest doctor and director Florence Randrianarisoa aka. Dr. Flogo.

  • Copied from an octopus: Researchers have developed a material that can keep your coffee at the optimum temperature for a long time – with the help of tiny copper sheets. Perfect for novelty mugs! Sea creatures were the model.
  • The strange everyday life of an ophthalmologist: Florence tells us about her craziest case of the clinic.
  • Bored in closing? of course not! The British simply started a massive citizen science project and digitized thousands of handwritten weather data from the 19th century.
