Episode 26: A Cat Called ‘Ugh’

It’s our one year anniversary! To celebrate, Graycen and Alison talk about cats who know their names, mosquitos who don’t like Skrillex, and fungi that don’t respond to drugs. Then they interview Beth Gardiner about her new book, Choked: Life and Breath in the Age of Air Pollution. Listen here or subscribe on iTunes!

 

 

Alison read about cats that know their names on Gizmodo, which inspired her to find the original paper. It’s very easy to read, she recommends it to anybody! And how can you not be tempted by cats?

Graycen read about skeeters and Skrillex from the original source, also a very easily digested paper.

Finally, Alison talked about this article in the New York Times about a mysterious and scary new fungus. Definitely worth the read, although you might have nightmares about fungi for a few days.

After the break, we talked to Beth Gardiner about her new book, Choked: Life and Breath in the Age of Air Pollution. You can follow her on Twitter!
