Love and Science

Head transplants, editing your own DNA and The Idiot Brain

November 20, 2017

Malcolm, Hannah and Andrew dissect the latest science stories as controversial head transplants and gene editing hit the headlines.

Andrew tells us about his latest adventure bringing Andy Weir, author of the Martian to Bristol and we hear how having a dog is really good news if you live alone.

We also hear from Dr Dean Burnett, author of The Idiot Brain.

It wouldn't be Love and Science without some astronomy though so Andrew tells us about the latest attempts to contact alien life.
