Well it's been almost a month since I last blogged so here's a bit of a catchup.

For Science! episode 2 was released. I think we're doing pretty well, Maia and Magdeline are excellent co-hosts, combining knowledge, humour and the ability to explain things in non-sciencese in two very cool packages.

We're going to be recording the next episode tomorrow night for release on Friday.
