In an episode recorded live but in private in Hobart, Tasmania, we hear about sexuality and neuroscience, the sexuality of the stars, and the curious sexualities of the sex industry.
In this episode there’s talk of truth in advertising, Pluto, foetal development, frisbees, autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR), the recently-discovered glymphatic system, the escorting business, the beginning of the universe, and much more.
Our guests are:
- Dr Lila Landowski, a neuroscientist at the University of Tasmania, and the Premier’s Young Achiever of the Year 2015. @rockatscientist
- Associate Professor Andrew Cole, an astrophysicist at the University of Tasmania, and “ultimate frisbee player, freelance philosopher, and beer critic”. @aacole42
- The Lovely Corrine, “engineer, escort, and all round smart person”. @LovelyCorrine
We also mentioned the Ig Nobel Prize.
