The Pseudoscientists Episode 108: Panspermia, Everything Sperm
Belinda, Jack, Sarah are joined by their newest cohost, Elizabeth Riaikkenen, and discuss her adventures being a skeptic in high school. But there’s science news too: the base of the tree of life might be wrong, and exam results don’t correlate with fluid intelligence. Jargonauts is all about that “abiogenesis” life, and Question of the Week ponders whether or not it is unethical to teach your kids about Santa.
