Zellbiologie 2: Forschung
Nachdem Tanja Maritzen uns in Episode 69 bereits die Grundlagen der Zellbiologie nähergebracht hat, geht es in diesem Gespräch mit ihr um die Erforschung der Molekularbiologie. Wir sprechen darüber, wofür man bei der Forschung an Zellen Antikörper braucht und wie man diese herstellt, wie man Proteine markiert, was man im Mikroskop sehen kann und was nicht und inwieweit Experimente reproduzierbar sind.

Terror Has A Business Plan
Combating its menace will be one of the biggest challenges of this decade. And for most part nations like India have failed to stifle the growth of terrorism. Perhaps we still havent developed a robust understanding of its root causes and also an effective toolkit to deal with it. Thats why we requested Sundeep Waslekar, president of Strategic Foresight Group, a leading think tank which advises governments around the world, to focus on that question. He and his team have studied every major terrorist group across the world and their practices over several decades.India is at the crossroads in its war on terror. Waslekars essay is a wake-up call for those who believe success lies in simply fighting terror with terror. And that doesnt necessarily make us a soft state.

The moral judgement of psychopaths
Our guest this week says psychopaths are rarely high functioning corporate executives with a taste for downsizing. More often, they are low functioning and far more prone than to violent crime than the rest of the population. Today we explore moral judgement, neuroscience, psychopathy and the criminal justice system with ethics Professor Walter Sinnott-Armstrong from Duke University in the United States.

Podcast reports until July 2011

Over the past weeks, a many people have contacted me with podcast reports - here is the lot of them:


Craig Nybo has left a new comment on your post "Report a Podcast":

I produce a fiction podcast called Scary Stories with Craig Nybo (Scary Stories with Craig Nybo on iTunes, feed). It’s a mix of horror and sci-fi short stories read by the author and enhanced with music and sound effects.

If you have a second, I would love it if you would check it out and write an honest review.

My email address:

Yours truly,

Craig Nybo

Thanks for your time.

European Cultural History Course

About 70 lectures given by George L Mosse at the University of Wisconsin Madison - quite a few years ago.

I used the "downloadthemall" program to download the MP3s. This was a bit of work to do as you have to go to each lecture page separately for a lot of the lectures.

I have not yet listened to them all, but what excerpts I have listened to have given me a good flavour, and I look forward to listening to the whole course.

Love your site!

Hello, we'd love it if you could take a look at We Are Not Alone, the 1950s science fiction sketch comedy podcast. (feed)

Here's the pitch:
Enter the strange world of mad scientists, out of control robots and cold war paranoia in the 1950s science fiction themed We Are Not Alone comedy podcasts.
Are you constantly plagued by mad scientists trying to rule the world? Do you reminisce about the days when we all feared for our existence due to nuclear warheads pointing at our homes? Do you long for the days before the invention of shower gel and regional accents?
Join us for a re-evaluation of history past, present and future. Come on in, the conspiracy is lovely.

To whom it may concern,

My name is Syd. I conduct a comedy podcast named The Argument (feed). It usually makes special time for the ridiculous, or otherwise absurd kinds of debates you get into with your friends about nothing and everything. These topics rarely, if ever, include anything of any social substance, as we prefer to discuss things like "Immortality: Would You Life Forever If You Could?" or the merits of using Facebook or not. The podcast is recorded in Louisville, KY. This is something we're revisiting, as the Argument was a podcast we'd initially conducted about three to four years ago, and those episodes should soon be up again, so we should have approximately 26 episodes. Fair warning, we are often rambly and prone to R-Rated comments about whatever our subject matter is; we rarely censure ourselves.

Hope this finds you well,


Hi Anne,

I am the co-producer of a weekly music reviews podcast called MSI: Music Scene Investigation and I was wondering if you would be willing to review the show for us? (feed)

Producers : Ian Husbands & Rich Wildman
Host : Rich Wildman

Each week we review 3 random songs on a one-off, first listen basis, and then review the songs, talking about the aspects of songwriting, mixing, production, arrangements, performances and personal opinion. Each week our in-house team are joined by a guest panelist who is and expert in their field, and we have been lucky enough to be joined by award winning songwriter John Schroeder, Britain's Best Blues Drummer (5 years consecutive) Sam Kelly, Singer/Songwriter/Producer Paul Miro and many more, including radio DJ's, indie music website owners and more... At the end of each show, we choose one of the reviewed songs to be Song Of The Week, which we then actively promote through our website and social networks!

We hope you enjoy the show and that you feel you can review it. We look forward to your thoughts.


Ian Husbands
