Podcast Stuff - Episode 52 of Down the Hall

Isn't it amazing what you can do with DNA?

In this week's episode, we talk about how a researcher has managed to code every one of Shakespeare's sonnets into a strand of his DNA (the "why" of this may elude you). Is this the key to our data storage solutions? Not until it doesn't cost you multiple thousands of dollars to decode the DNA strand. But it's still cool!

We also have part 2 of our interview with Dr. Michael Marker, talking about the challenges involved with bringing good education to remote indigenous communities, as well as getting a little bit metaphysical. How about the clash of cultures when attempting to bring teachers to these communities from the outside? It's another great interview, one that I know you'll enjoy (though you should listen to Part 1 if you haven't already).

All of this, the remains of an English king, and why Penguins don't tweet!

You know what else you could do on this Valentine's Day (ok, week, since we still have a few days)? You know, as a Valentine for me?

You do care about me, don't you?

Don't answer that.
