Podcast 24: The problem with Arctic amplification

Recently, scientists have been observing that the problems associated with climate change are being felt much more severely at the top of the planet. So why is this, and what exactly is “Arctic Amplification”? Recording and editing by Iona Macwhirter-Harley and audio by Simon Fisher.

Podcast 23: Lee Cronin, the ‘Chemputer’, and New Designs of Life

A new revolution in drug development is coming… What if sharing the recipe for a chemical compound was as simple as downloading a blueprint? Long-time GISTer Miruna Costreie sat down with Professor Lee Cronin, and got the details on his lab’s latest work, his long-term goal of creating a new form of life, and how competition and collaboration (our latest magazine’s theme) have shaped his career. ~ If you’d like to read more about Professor Cronin’s work, you can read the original paper, check out his lab’s website, and a demonstration for the University of Glasgow in a video here. Special thanks again to Prof. Cronin for taking the time to speak to us, and his PA Amanda McGarvey for fitting us in. Interview and recording by Miruna Costreie, editing by Miruna and Gabriela De Sousa.

Podcast 21: FameLab 2018

If we had to describe FameLab, it would be like Radio 4’s “just a minute” – you have to talk without repetition, hesitation and deviation. But instead, it’s three minutes in front of an audience, and each talk is about an interesting part of STEM! Annabel May visits Glasgow Caledonian University to interview this year’s winners of the Glaswegian heat of FameLab, and chats to Kenneth Macdonald (BBC Scotland Science correspondent) about science communication.

Podcast 19: The Prisoners Dilemma – From Board Games to Mutually Assured Destruction

This month we’re talking game theory! We interview Jörg Bewersdorff, author of Luck, Logic and White Lies, and take a look at the famous “prisoner’s dilemma”. This nifty piece of game theory can explain everything from how you act if you’re an accomplice to murder, on day time TV or, in charge of the nuclear codes. Event and interviews took place on 23rd of November 2017. You can find more information about the UTOPIAE project atutopiae.eu– Special thanks to Jörg Bewersdorff for taking the time to speak with us and to Peter McGinty for setting up the interview.
