Episode 23: Cat food vs. big-headed ants, autonomous cave bots, Elizabeth and Fast Radio Bursts, and bye bye for now

This episode Jesse and Harry talk ants and tech: CSIRO's phenomenally successful eradication of African big-headed ants from Lord Howe Island. Good lord, how!? Cat food. Poisonous cat food. They also chat about autonomous cave-exploring droids and also speak with star researcher Dr Elizabeth Mahony about interstellar radio explosions, Fast Radio Bursts, and the newly isolated origins of one in particular. It's also the final episode of Interronauts for some time, so go and have a listen to our others, here: BACK CATALOGUE. Go ahead and give us a rating on iTunes, all the kids are doing it.

Episode 22: Purple Earth and plants' war for the rainbow, white rice; brown benefits, smells like Teen 13+, and an attack on titan

Jesse sets off on a solo venture through the overgrown and tangled world of science news this Interronauts, beginning at the beginning with early Earth perhaps implanted with purple, not chlorophyll green, pigment, before heading undersea with two new species of very small jellyfish discovered by CSIRO researchers, bushbashing in the crops, the cropage, with our and the Chinese Academy of Sciences' work blending the benefits of brown rice with the pale ease of white rice, trekking through the clonal trunks, the forest of one known as Pando to get to the base of its stunted growth, and finally wrapping up in the cool slightly sour-atmosphere of a packed cinema, finding out how our smells might reveal movies' classification.

Episode 21: Science of indecision, helping fish with hands, space booty, and a chat with Rich Pillans, giant sawfish conservationist

Umm...ah...it's Interronauts...we think. Join Jesse and Sarah as they discuss the ideal number of choices to choose from, a tiny imperilled fish and how we're helping to rebuild the critically endangered, fearsomely cute spotted handfish in Tasmania, Australia's roadmap towards a future in space, AND we chat with CSIRO researcher Dr Rich Pillans recently back from the Top End and a bonza survey of some of our most endangered aquatic life, including the speartooth shark, northern river shark, and the seven metre leviathan: the largetooth sawfish.

Episode 20: Teenage mutagenic-ingesting turtles (how I gave up balloons), antibiotic inserts, transplant complications, and a Ceres of satellites

Cowabunga! On this episode of Interronauts Kate and Gavin join Jesse to talk about scourges of our times: marine debris and antibiotic resistance, as well as science's endeavours to set us on the straight and narrow, the clean and biotic. They also talk about the use of third person in podcast descriptions ("We don't actually, we prefer first person but are twenty episodes into the precedent..."), NovaSAR-1-a new state of the art satellite, which provides Australia 10% helm-time, and finally, a rare case of organ transplant complications and a crazy little thing called CTVT, a disease, but also a single-celled dog. You'll just have to listen. To learn more about any of the stories we covered on the show, visit the Interronauts blog page, here. Go ahead and give us a rating on iTunes, all the kids are doing it.

EUp, up, and away with Kate and Gavin and Jesse on this episode of Interronauts where they talk about a new treatment for pancreatic cancer using killer cells, CSIRO's new vehicles powered not on gasoline but hydrogen, and a fortnightly science digest about the oldest cheese, neutron stars, omnivorous sharks, and moooore.

Episode 18: Minority Report billboards, un-electric chairs, iron-less cotton, and this fortnight in science news

This episode technophile Ketan teaches technophobe Jesse about big data and the big burden it bears, why robot marketers are more unnerving than you know, how hackers might have swiped your fingerprints (drats; crims are supposed to leave 'em behind, not steal 'em), this fortnight in science news, and isn't it ironic? Well, isn't it? No, not really. It's our new cotton that doesn't crease and doesn't need ironing, it's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife.

Episode 17: Mm, I get high-rises with a little help from my fronds, Martian lakes, microbial census, and swiped IDs

Take a walk on the mild side with Rif and Jesse on this XL episode as they explain why Australia was in dire need of a marine microbe census, how every touch of your smartphone screen gives you away, the liquid water lake (what!?) on Mars, and finally, chat with Dr Brenda Lin about sustainable living, resilient cities, and the loss of nature from our lives.

In this J-mad episode, Josie, Jessie, and Jesse discuss the need for naming marine heatwaves like you might hurricanes, the plight of the waylaid northern bald ibis (Geronticus eremita), using non-invasive, surface-level cues for detecting gold deposits, the plants of Antarctica-as part of the Antarctic Festival in Hobart-AND we speak with one of our wearable tech experts, Samy Movassaghi on her research and career path.

Episode 15: Please no Genie McGene Face, infertile invasive mozzies, and science digest

Get your fly swats out (or your sleepy cheeks) because this episode researchers Kate Tepper and Gavin Volpato join Jesse to chat about our project to release sterilised male mosquitoes to drown-out an invasive mozzie species responsible for dengue fever and Zika. We also do a slapdash digest through the last fortnight's science news, and then speak with Dr Cameron Stewart about the discovery of a vital immunity gene and the parlous quest to have the public name it. Get your single-celled, Wolbachia jokes ready because you're about to have a ball. Amendments: • Sorry for the audio quality in the 'science news digest' segment-it was recorded before we resolved our audio issues. • Amendment: Researchers found prehistoric tools in China, not human remains, which suggest an exodus from Africa up to 2 million years ago-the oldest evidence of humans outside Africa.

Episode 14: Robolibrarians, medical marijuana for pets, dwindling Antarctica, and +200 new species

This episode, Ketan Joshi from our Data61 team joins Interronauts to talk about the future, specifically, the future of AI and autonomous cars, and all things robo-librarians, not to mention a recent study on Antarctica set 50 years in the future, which takes a retrospective at two courses of action we humans might take to slow the gradual degradation of that lovely white continent, and, following that, a chat about the >200 new species we've discovered and named in the last year-more than one species every second day, sheesh. And, this episode, we have an interview with our Dr Ben Muir, manager of the Rapid Automated Materials & Processing centre, who's been working with pet pharmaceutical group CannPal on developing a microencapsulation technology for precis medical marijuana delivery.
