Bayblab Pubcast

After a long hiatus, the bayblab podcast comes back with force with a new formula. The recording is live at a pub of our choice with live audience (of exactly one female) as we discuss the topics of organic food, human evolution and stem cells.
  1. As we enjoy our industrial GM'ed beer concoctions at a local pub we focus the first part of the discussion on organic foods: what does the organic label mean, is there scientific basis for claims of superior "healthyness" and does readopting ancient farming techniques really benefits mankind.
  2. In the second segment of the bayblab pubcast we discuss human evolution, modern natural selection pressure, memes and pandemics. Plus can kamel sing my little teapot?
  3. Stem cells: Do they exist, or are they just a figment of Rob's imagination?
