This week on The Conduct Science Podcast, join Mitch and Tom as they tangent their way through the universe! Opting again for a general topic the boys start out with some amazing news that has come out in science this week. Mitch and Tom take a minute or two to talk about how COVID is impacting their lives before heading into the meat of the show. Tom explains the possible shapes of the universe and Mitch enlightens us on the topic of neutron star spin energy. Perserverance and Ingenuity landed on Mars in March, but how have they been getting on since? Breaking away from  the topic slightly the boys talk about Dune (SPOILER FREE) and input their view on whether films should be watched with subtitles or dubbed. Tom ends the show exploring some of the science of star wars: Binary star systems, space flight patterns, and asteroid fields! Music: WhiteBatAudio.com

    Science the Movies Got Wrong

    1:08:33

    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!

    1:06:41

    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!

    Vocal Learning with Dr. Erich Jarvis

    50:45

    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.

    Asteroids, COP26, Bezos, and Fireworks

    1:07:40

    This week on The Conduct Science Podcast join the boys on a rollercoaster of topics. What was intended to be Universe Part II ends up being a great conversation about science in the world today. 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!

Then get ready to be introduced to the world of resource science as Mitch explores how science is used to best utilise the natural resources of the world in the most sustainable manner. We explore what Dymaxion Houses are, their advantages compared to normal housing, and why they were never widely adopted. Tom takes a turn at the Earth science section and takes you on a tour of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current... what he claims to be the most important current in the world, and how it impacts the rest of Earth itself. The boys get sucked into a bit of a debate around the current state of the worlds climate action... or lack of it and how we should look to tackle it in the future. Mitch ends the show on Biofouling, should we really spend over $5 billion a year to prevent animals sticking to boats? Find out here! Music: WhiteBatAudio.com
