This week on Science Saturday, I get a big gay(er than usual) and talk a bit about how biology and natural selection might explain different forms of human sexuality.
Jack and Liz are joined by Melbourne stand-up and improvisational comedian Liam Ryan to chat about a mysterious rock on Mars, how teenagers ruined a longitudinal health study, and why stereotypes about comedians might actually hold some weight, while Jargonauts lays eggs in “parasitoid”.
The Pseudoscientists Episode 86 — Sleeping flies, Martian colonists, freaky animal sex, and gender identity
Tom and Jack discuss flies sleeping like humans, the crazy ambitions of the Mars One project to have people on Mars by 2023, and the weird sex that animals have. Jargonauts takes a look at comas, and we discuss last week’s Question of the Week on gender identity (and sexuality, of course).
