We’ve talked about the very origin of life, but certain transitions along its subsequent history were incredibly important. Perhaps none more so than the transition from unicellular to multicellular organisms, which made possible an incredible diversity of organisms and structures. Will Ratcliff studies the physics that constrains multicellular str…

She's made mistakes she's open about - from low-calorie diets and losing her period, to setting goals too small for herself. On this episode, we talk to Kate about her journey to the CrossFit Games, establishing an unbreakable mindset and approach…
 
Mathematics is often thought of as the pinnacle of crisp precision: the square of the hypotenuse of a right triangle isn’t “roughly” the sum of the squares of the other two sides, it’s exactly that. But we live in a world of messy imprecision, and increasingly we need sophisticated techniques to quantify and deal with approximate statistical relati…
 
Welcome to the November 2021 Ask Me Anything episode of Mindscape! These monthly excursions are funded by Patreon supporters (who are also the ones asking the questions). I take the large number of questions asked by Patreons, whittle them down to a more manageable size — based primarily on whether I have anything interesting to say about them, not…
 
In the right circumstances, stress can be a good thing. It’s what mobilises us, what helps us adapt and grow. But ongoing, and in the wrong circumstances, it can wreak havoc on your body and function - causing damage and setbacks. So how do you overcome it? What can be done to combat high levels of stress that we so often see in today’s society? If…
 
It’s a well-worn cliché that oceans cover seventy percent of the surface of Earth, but we tend to give them secondary consideration when thinking about the environment. But climate change is wreaking havoc on the oceans, not to mention pollution and overfishing — 90% of the world’s marine fish stocks are fully exploited or depleted. Today’s guest, …
 
During the 1-900 number craze of the Nineties, one company provided the vast majority of phone sex. American Telnet was an empire founded by the man who called himself “The Telephone Pimp.” He ran the company “like General Motors” and got filthy rich doing it. But for the (mostly) women who answered the calls and delivered fantasies 24-7, it was a …

Science and storytelling have a long and tumultuous relationship. Scientists sometimes want stories to be just an advertisement for how awesome science is; storytellers sometimes want to use science for a few cheap thrills before abandoning it in the morning. But science is about ideas, and ideas can make for thrilling stories when done well. David…
 
Tracking calories or macros can be tough. It's a great tool for fat loss and weight goals but it can also be a challenge. This week, we discuss the tools you can use instead of tracking to reach your results, from the low hanging fruit to the more complex methods. The principle of weight loss is being in a caloric deficit - so how can you achieve t…
 
As the holidays approach, we are being reminded of the fragility of the global supply chain. But at the same time, the supply chain itself is a truly impressive and fascinating structure, made as it is from multiple components that must work together in synchrony. From building an item in a factory and shipping it worldwide to transporting it local…

There is so much we don’t know about our universe. But our curiosity about the unknown shouldn’t blind us to the incredible progress we have made in cosmology over the last century. We know the universe is big, expanding, and accelerating. Modern cosmologists are using unprecedentedly precise datasets to uncover more details about the evolution and…
 
Do we all have the same 24 hours in a day? Everyone considers themselves quite busy. It's often an excuse we have heard on repeat over the years; we're 'too busy' or ‘I didn’t have time’ While it's often true - when you have work, children, partners, chores, socialising and the like to prioritise, there are some simple factors that can help set you…
 
Games are everywhere, but why exactly do we play them? It seems counterintuitive, to artificially invent goals and obstacles just so we can struggle to achieve them. (And in some games, like Twister, the fun is in losing, even though you’re supposed to try to win.) C. Thi Nguyen is a philosopher who has developed a theory of games as an art form wh…
