||CleanThe Amphipod's Unique Escape||The hunted are smart to stay downwind of the hunter. Many predators hunt using scent, at least in part. The same principle works in water. Many predators smell chemicals given off by their prey and use that scent to help them locate their prey. If you ...||9/21/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanThe Key to Real Leadership||Wasp colonies in temperate zones usually wait until the end of summer to raise male young. That's because male wasps are typically useless consumers of food.

||CleanWhat Does the Milky Way Say About Evolution?||When we look at the size of the universe, it sometimes becomes easier to see evolution as credible.

Not a "Science" Podcast
This should be in a "Religion" or "Culture" category. This is not scientific information, rather it is an attack on science by "Bible Science News." It is not even a disguised attack, and should therefore be re-categorized as soon as possible so as not to be misleading. That said, I do find it interesting (though disturbing). As a scientist, I am always curious about all things. I recommend listening, but taking it with a large grain of salt!
Today's Creation Moment
Can I give less than "one" star? This is absolutely NOT science (can its own title be any more explicit?) and should be placed in the Religion and Spirituality section.
It is great to hear a voice of reason oppose the brainwashing of 80 years of american public education. So many people believe the lie that evolution is scientific and creationism is just a religious fable. I love this podcast and listen every day. More important, I use the material presented here when I talk to people about origins.
