What do you get when you cross cutting-edge science, good old-fashioned conversation and near-lethal levels of wit? The answer, of course, is the latest instalment of The GIST’s very own podcast. Four chatty members of The GIST decided to sit in a room and discuss some of the more pressing matters facing science, students and comic book-readers a-like.

Find out the meaning of cum hoc ergo proctor hoc in the first of a new feature called “Rhetological Fallacies”. Everyone discusses the recent incident of heavy-metal poisoning at Southampton University and the team raises the bigger question of who is ultimately responsible for safety in the lab. Lewis Ross introduces another new feature called “You broke my physics”, explaining how any number of super-powers could be used – somewhat unethically – to produce a perpetual motion machine. All this and more, available for your listening pleasure, in the newest instalment of our monthly podcast. Want to know what’s going on? Get The GIST.

    Annoyingly it seems that I didn’t take the time to explain that water is more dense than you would expect (due to hydrogen bonding). Damn the distraction of Brian Cox and open crystal structures!
