Science – New podcasts

  • Every week we have conversations with the most successful people in our network. We learn their stories and the lessons learned before diving in and getting the real "meat." Every single show has actionable takeaways that listeners can implement in their own life or business. We focus on topics around traffic, brand awareness, wealth growth, podcasting, marketing automation, mindset, lifestyle, and business systematization but have been known to go pretty "off script" from time to time to discuss a wide variety of topics to help people improve their lives. We describe our show as "A Life Improvement Podcasting Masquerading As A Business Podcast."

  • In the first decades of the 21st century, researchers are beginning to understand in detail how our genetic inheritance makes us who we are. At the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics, our aim is to extend that understanding in order to gain a clearer insight into mechanisms of health and disease. Looking across all three billion letters of the human genetic code, we aim to pinpoint variant spellings and discover how they increase or decrease an individual’s risk of falling ill.

  • Multiple sclerosis (MS) affects 400,000 Americans and is the leading nontraumatic cause of neurological disability in young adults. Although MS is progressive, it is not fatal, and patients generally have a normal lifespan. However, progressive disability imposes increasing limitations and reduced quality of life for these patients. Newly released consensus guidelines offer neurologists and primary care physicians direction to improve the differential diagnosis and develop strategies to facilitate early and accurate diagnosis of MS. A number of factors must be considered when selecting a treatment regimen for patients with MS, including variations in clinical and MRI evidence of disease. The discovery and broad application of MRI in medicine has led to an increased awareness of the number of patients with incidental white matter pathology in the CNS. The natural history or evolution of such individuals with respect to their risk of developing MS is unclear, but a need for further studies on this subject and physician awareness is essential for progression of disease therapy in MS. In this two-part neuroscienceCME Journal Club series, the authors will translate their research and provide insights and application to clinical practice.

  • If you want to know what criminal investigation is like in real life, then get ready for a podcast that puts YOU at the crime scene.
    This series will look at the latest developments, the famous cases and how the forensic scientists are meeting the challenge laid down by a criminal who is forensically aware.
    Lynda La Plante has always been fascinated by criminality and the people that solve crime. Her books are celebrated for their authentic depictions of crime scenes and police procedures – something she achieves through meticulous research with her colleague, CSI Cass Sutherland.
    Over six episodes, Lynda and Cass will investigate six branches of forensics: discussing their own experiences, talking with experts, hearing how real life crime scenes are worked, exploring the latest innovations and demonstrating how CSI fact is even more thrilling than CSI fiction.
    Episodes will reveal how plant regrowth can be used to track a killer’s path months after a crime was committed; how a fly on the wall can be more than an observer; why the ‘sibling defence’ can unravel DNA evidence; and why a dog’s nose can sniff out cases of arson that the scientists miss.
    A murderer is 20% more likely to be convicted if forensic evidence can be presented in court by the prosecution. Yet fingerprints are currently recovered from only 40% of crime scenes, and DNA at a mere 10%. Now more than ever, forensic scientists are under pressure to improve their success rate – their challenge is to advance their crafts and uncover the hidden clues that are left at every crime scene.
    Join author Lynda La Plante and former detective Cass Sutherland for a series that reveals the real secrets of CSI.

  • Welcome to British Food, a History: Lent.
    In his first podcast series, chef, food historian, scientist and blogger, Dr Neil Buttery charts the season of Lent.
    Over seven episodes, dropping each Sunday throughout Lent (starting 23/02/20), he'll be looking at the special days and customs that crop up over the 40-day fast, assessing it from every angle: the food, the social history, the anthropology and the science. Of course there's a healthy sprinkling of religion in there too. It's a podcast that tells us about why we mark Lent, how we do it and how that all fits into our evolutionary journey.
    Just how did communities manage to get through it in centuries past? It must have been a grim and gruelling part of the year in miserable Britain. No meat products were permitted and there was little or no fresh produce, given the bleak time of year Lent usually falls.
    As we move across time, toward the modern day, we’ll see how the strict rules of Lent have changed and slackened as our lives have become less and less gruelling. This may be a good thing, but it means we’ve lost many of our customs, much of our heritage, and – frankly – the point.
    Throughout the series, Neil will be interviewing all types of people, from bishops to evolutionary biologists, chocolatiers to farmers as well as the great British public.

    The series is written and presented by Neil Buttery and is produced by Beena Khetani.
