Jack, Rachael and Tom step into the offices of the Foundation for Young Australians and talk about the stereo-​​noses of moles, how genes can travel faster than stories (or how sex is better than talking), and how screwed we’re all going to be in the event of a global collapse of civilisation. Jargonauts gets off balance with “homeostasis”, and we make the choice between exploring space or the ocean, with your help. Next week’s question: “Would you rather wipe out every other human on Earth (besides yourself), or wipe out the near-​​total majority of the biodiversity of the planet?”

Plus, The Matrix, Richard III under a carpark, and bird-​​talk.
