I missed this episode due to work. And, as usual, I don't actually think it suffered from my absence. Quite the opposite, in fact.

This week, the gang were joined by Sumen Rai, a former science communicator and now an industry analyst for defence and aerospace.

The subjects discussed were: meat grown in the lab, atom-sized transistors, seismic activity on the moon, robot fish and water worlds. I especially loved the discussion about lab-grown meat, the ethical questions that were raised, as well as the ecological and "humanist" issues. Good stuff.
