Genetic drift is a science podcast like no other. Join the duo of Anthony and Juliet as they take a deep dive into the world of genetic diseases and medical genetics. In this show, we will lead you through the biology of each disease including the molecular genetics that can determine the outcome of these hereditary conditions. We then discuss the medical history of the disease as well as what we know of it's origins from the genes themselves before discussing their future alongside common m ...

The Antikythera Mechanism is a portable planetarium from Ancient Greece. It is 2200 years old and the first known analog computer. Dr. Nick Andronis built one. The front shows the zodiac position of the first 5 planets, sun, moon phase and date. On the back a 72 year lunar and Olympic calendar with solar or lunar ecliplses. www.amclock.net drkarl.c…
2022 looked safe -then it wasn't . Dr Karl investigates with University of Sydney Prof Eddie Holmes. He was the first western source of the Wuhan genome. How could Omicron fool the world? How can we avoid being fooled again?
We are counting on an electrified future to cut carbon emissions. Greener futures, as we plan them, depend on electricity and electro-magnetism. Dr Karl explores the physics of electricity and generators with Professor Lewis. drkarl.com geraintflewis.com
Every week new supplements are announced and promoted. Some can be useful additions to your diet but what about probiotics and prebiotics ? Dietetics professor Collins explains what they claim, what is in them and if they help.
Electricity is a great foundation for sustainable energy but Dr Karl discovers how little he knows about the physics of electrons. We all have much to learn about the source of power from Professor Lewis. drkarl.com geraintflewis.com
What colour is our Sun? (or Sol as local folks call it). How long will it stay that way? Professor Lewis resumes his fascinating journey in time space and consciousness. We pick up where things are now and go forward to the end. How does it all end? Listen with Dr Karl on this multi-trillion year trip. drkarl.com geraintflewis.com…

Australia has a new Antarctic Vessel. Jono Reeve takes Dr Karl on a virtual tour of the features of the RSV Nuyina. drkarl.com RSV Nuyina
There were high hopes for the Hubble space telescope. Eventually they were realised with pictures of galaxies beyond our widest visions. This century the James Webb promises both time and space with a different universal perspective. Dr Jessica Bloom on why this is a game changer.
The diseases of ageing are already overwhelming health care facilities. In the decades ahead, our older populations will put even more pressure on health unless there are medical breakthroughs. These diseases are proving stubborn to medicate and cures are very rare. A human fountain of youth has yet to show itself. In other animals, things appear e…
In 1966, two Soviet cosmologists proposed the existence of primordial black holes. 55 years on, evidence mounts that these ancient bodies actually exist. They are the stem cells of the cosmos scattered on a universal matrix and may be pre-atomic. Professor Lewis takes Dr Karl back to the very beginning for an encounter with these dark beasts.drkarl…
A zap from a doorknob or a lightning bolt that sets fire to a forest, these events are notoriously unpredictable. If there is an imbalance of electric charge, a Static Electricity event "might" happen. Things like air humidity or microscopic superficial bumps can play a role – but how much? Professor Lewis explains the known physics and yet-to-be d…
What happens when a star gets hungry? Could it eat another star? Cosmic cannibalism is a thing. 500 million years ago in a galaxy far, far away – to be precise, about 500 million light years away one of two stars gobbled the other.
