I really enjoyed being on this one. Partly because my screwups were a bit better covered, but mostly because our guest was awesome - Dr. Mick Vagg, a pain specialist who's smart as a tack, interesting, and who talked about RANGAS! And I might have mentioned Scrubs. Twice.

Apart from Scrubs,we talked about using synthetic cannabinoids as analgesics in cancer patients, prehistoric hawk-sized insects, mosquitoes are bastards who are not defeated by water, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and its effect on microbial communities, using fruit flies to study insulin resistance and human diabetes, and the genetic sequencing (however imperfectly done) on an unborn foetus without invasive procedures.
