A great conversation with Microbioligist Dr. Amanda Martyn PhD, and us regular knobs. She explains the use of animal models in research, her own and standard practices. She describes the winding tale of breadcrumbs that lead her PhD knock-out mice to illuminate the link of a protein to postpartum depression. And then, after gratiously doing that for us; we interrupt her sacred cow, in a new segment of the same name. Where she then has to defend her belief in ghosts, all in good fun.
After which, in another new segment, Rachael plays Pseudoscience or Pseudo-pseudoscience, in a tunnel underneath the earth. Given three options, she needs to pick which one Dave made up, and which two everyone else made up. Play along and see how you stack up against the pseudo-guru Rachael.
