Night shift struck again, so my dulcet tones were not donated to this episode. My amateurish attempts will be there for al to hear in the next one. This one had Pen, Lucas, and the return of Jo Benhamu.

Direct link to the mp3 file; 1:02:14...and haven't listened to this one yet either...

But apparently it was damn good (they spoke for over a fucking hour, after all...) - smelly old people, giving paralysed rats some movement back through robotics, a genetic link to restless legs syndrome, Mars meteorites that DON'T show life (nice change from the usual astrobiological bullcrap), vision loss in astronauts, creepy people (again), the new (114th and 116th) elements, the Mediterranean diet and how it can apparently bolster mental and physical health, and a mathematical model that predicts a new level of AI.

****

And for something completely random and non-scientific: the first season trailer to one of the most intriguing shows ever made, Carnivàle.

Eva and I first saw this show a few years ago when it was being shown on channel 2, but for some reason we never saw the second season (THAT'S RIGHT I HAVEN'T SEEN IT SO IF ANY OF YOU BUGGERS SPOIL IT FOR ME I'LL EVISCERATE YOU). We both loved it, but promptly forgot it. And then, a couple of days ago we saw both seasons on sale for a steal - NABBED. And now I have to stop myself from watching them obsessively. Two episodes in and I'm remembering just how compelling it was. It's such a shame that they cancelled it after two seasons.
