    Bioelectric Networks & Cellular Motivations - Dr. Michael Levin, Synthetic Biologist, Tufts Univ.

    1:33:52

    Dr. Michael Levin is a developmental and synthetic biologist best known for two things - the creation of xenobots - biological robots created from frog cells - and his ability to fine-tune the bodyplan of regenerating organisms with morphogenic bioelectric fields. He's speaks with us about the philosophical foundations of his work in regenerative medicine, which include intricate theories of cognition that assert the goal-seeking behavior associated with the "self" is apparent at all scales of life. His work serves as a proof-of-concept for this view of the world, as he has demonstrated it is much more effective to change how organisms grow and regenerate through the careful direction of this goal-seeking behavior, rather than through traditional biochemical methods. His rigorous attention to the philosophy of biology - which includes his forward-thinking definitions of terms like "self," "intelligence," and "cognition" - allows his ideas to jump from the page and into a reality filled with two-headed immortal worms and frog-skin xenobots.

    The Pleistocene Murders - Forrest Bishop, Paleobiologist

    1:33:03

    A conversation with Forrest Bishop about the Pleistocene Murders - a whodunnit theory that seeks the cause of the megafaunal extinction that rocked the planet during the most recent period of glaciations - from 2.5 million years ago to about 10,000 years ago. While most theories - including a recent paper from Tel Aviv university point the finger at increasing populations of hungry humans, Forrest proposes that this ignores a crucial, global change that occurred over the course of the Pleistocene: a global decrease in carbon dioxide levels.   In the Pleistocene Murders, he proposes that falling carbon dioxide levels led to the dominance of c4 plants - those who can flourish at relatively low partial pressures of CO2. This evolutionary advantage allowed grasslands to dominate the globe... which, in turn, led to a decrease in the caloric content of the trophic foundation of the world's ecosystems. It's an excellent story that binds together geology, chemistry, and biology... and even a little bit of spirit, as humans have an emergent role on the planet that we get to at the very end of the conversation   Support the podcast by becoming a Patron @DemystifySci  ªº¬˚∆≤≥≤≥ https://www.patreon.com/demystifysci ≤≥≤≥∆˚¬ºª   Pleistocene Murders Blog: http://www.castaliahouse.com/otherscience-stories-the-pleistocene-murders-part-1/   ªº¬˚∆≤≥≤≥ Join the mailing list https://bit.ly/3v3kz2S​ ≤≥≤≥∆˚¬ºª   Check our main channel, @DemystifyingScience for in depth-investigations:   https://youtu.be/1OCL5Lq8m6s   PODCAST INFO: Blog: http://demystifyingscience.com/blog   Apple Podcasts: https://apple.co/3uhn7J1 Spotify: https://spoti.fi/39IDJBD RSS: https://anchor.fm/s/2be66934/podcast/rss Donate: https://bit.ly/3wkPqaD Swag: https://bit.ly/2PXdC2y   SOCIAL: - Twitter: https://twitter.com/demystifysci - Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/demystifyingscience - Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/demystifysci/ --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/demystifying-science/support

    What Is Electric Current? - Ivor Catt, Electrical Engineer

    2:09:37

    This is the second installment of a multipart series with famed electric heretic Ivor Catt. This time, he is here to tell us the story of the Catt question: where does the instantaneous negative charge on the bottom conductor of a simple circuit come from? A satisfying answer to the question would require us to rewire the common conception of how electrical current moves through a circuit, and so has occupied Ivor for decades. the conversation digs into Catt's question, the potential solution of Heaviside energy current, and the stodgy nature of academic science.    Support the podcast by becoming a Patron @DemystifySci   ªº¬˚∆≤≥≤≥ https://www.patreon.com/demystifysci ≤≥≤≥∆˚¬ºª   Ivor Catt - http://ivorcatt.co.uk   Maxwell’s original papers on electromagnetism: https://royalsocietypublishing.org/doi/pdf/10.1098/rstl.1865.0008   ªº¬˚∆≤≥≤≥ Join the mailing list https://bit.ly/3v3kz2S​ ≤≥≤≥∆˚¬ºª   Check our main channel, @DemystifyingScience for in depth-investigations:  https://youtu.be/1OCL5Lq8m6s PODCAST INFO: Blog: http://demystifyingscience.com/blog   Apple Podcasts: https://apple.co/3uhn7J1 Spotify: https://spoti.fi/39IDJBD RSS: https://anchor.fm/s/2be66934/podcast/rss Donate: https://bit.ly/3wkPqaD Swag: https://bit.ly/2PXdC2y SOCIAL: - Twitter: https://twitter.com/demystifysci - Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/demystifyingscience - Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/demystifysci/ MUSIC: -Humans Win: https://www.lancewconrad.com --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/demystifying-science/support

    Rethinking How Science is Published - Étienne Fortier-Dubois, Founder of JAWWS

    56:58

    Today on the show we are speaking with Etienne Fortier Dubois about the problems with scientific publishing and what an ideal future might look like: One where science is freely shared amongst all thinkers, not merely those within a discipline, or those with the institutional power to pay for access. Etienne is presently working on a new journal called the JAWWS - the journal of actually well written science. His goal is to reformat high impact papers so that they can be understood by anyone with a basic undergraduate level comprehension of the material. A fairly low bar in a society like the united states where nearly half of the population has a college degree. Our conversation expands into alternatives to peer review - a recurring point of contention on the show among outsiders and academics alike.   Support the podcast by becoming a Patron @DemystifySci   ªº¬˚∆≤≥≤≥ https://www.patreon.com/demystifysci ≤≥≤≥∆˚¬ºª   Étienne Fortier-Dubois - https://etiennefd.com/dgm/the-journal-of-actually-well-written-science ªº¬˚∆≤≥≤≥ Join the mailing list https://bit.ly/3v3kz2S​ ≤≥≤≥∆˚¬ºª   Check our main channel, @DemystifyingScience for in depth-investigations:  https://youtu.be/1OCL5Lq8m6s PODCAST INFO: Blog: http://demystifyingscience.com/blog   Apple Podcasts: https://apple.co/3uhn7J1 Spotify: https://spoti.fi/39IDJBD RSS: https://anchor.fm/s/2be66934/podcast/rss Donate: https://bit.ly/3wkPqaDSwag: https://bit.ly/2PXdC2y SOCIAL: - Twitter: https://twitter.com/demystifysci - Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/demystifyingscience - Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/demystifysci/ MUSIC: -Will Van De Crommert --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/demystifying-science/support

    So Many from One? - Dr. Matthew Herron, Georgia Tech

    1:17:35

    This week’s episode is with Dr. Matthew Herron, professor of Evolutionary Biology at Georgia Tech university. He found us through a series of articles on our blog about the emergence of multicellularity, and joined us for an excellent conversation on the topic. Over the course of the hour we covered all kinds of topics, from what the biology of Volvocine algae can tell us about our own multicelled nature, to more philosophical subjects like the emergence of life on earth, the value of careful speculation, and the way that basic science encourages us to pursue pure curiosity, simply for the sake of knowing what’s possible.   Support the podcast by becoming a Patron @DemystifySci  ªº¬˚∆≤≥≤≥ https://www.patreon.com/demystifysci ≤≥≤≥∆˚¬ºª   Matthew Herron - https://www.matthewherron.net https://twitter.com/xprinceps Support us and Dr. Herron when you purchase his upcoming book: https://amzn.to/3neEkBY Tong et al, 2021 review or theories of initiation of multicellularity: https://www.preprints.org/manuscript/202111.0194/v1 ªº¬˚∆≤≥≤≥ Join the mailing list https://bit.ly/3v3kz2S​ ≤≥≤≥∆˚¬ºª   Check our main channel, @DemystifyingScience for in depth-investigations:  https://youtu.be/1OCL5Lq8m6s PODCAST INFO: Blog: http://demystifyingscience.com/blog   SOCIAL: - Twitter: https://twitter.com/demystifysci - Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/demystifyingscience - Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/demystifysci/ MUSIC: -Michael Vignoia & Shilo Delay --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/demystifying-science/support

    Particles as Ripples in a Universal Material - Dr. Harry Cliff, CERN - LHC

    1:10:26

    Dr. Harry Cliff is an LHCb particle physicist, Cavendish Fellow, and the writer of an excellent book about subatomic physics called “How to Make an Apple Pie From Scratch: In Search of the Recipe of Our Universe.” Our discussion today circled around the big question of: what exactly IS a subatomic particle? We also go deep into free will vs. determinism, how biology is only one part physics, and by the end of it, we had a much clearer picture of what it is that physicists actually mean when they speak of “fields,” “particles,” and “entanglement.” Support the podcast by becoming a Patron @DemystifySci   ªº¬˚∆≤≥≤≥ https://www.patreon.com/demystifysci ≤≥≤≥∆˚¬ºª   ªº¬˚∆≤≥≤≥ Join the mailing list https://bit.ly/3v3kz2S ≤≥≤≥∆˚¬ºª   Check our main channel, @DemystifyingScience for in depth-investigations:  https://youtu.be/1OCL5Lq8m6s  Dr. Harry Cliff:    https://www.harrycliff.co.uk  https://twitter.com/harryvcliff  PODCAST INFO:  Blog: http://demystifyingscience.com/blog   Apple Podcasts: https://apple.co/3uhn7J1 Spotify: https://spoti.fi/39IDJBD RSS: https://anchor.fm/s/2be66934/podcast/rss Donate: https://bit.ly/3wkPqaDSwag: https://bit.ly/2PXdC2y  SOCIAL:  - Twitter: https://twitter.com/demystifysci - Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/demystifyingscience - Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/demystifysci/  MUSIC: Shilo Delay: https://soundcloud.com/laterisgone --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/demystifying-science/support
