Nature Boy: The Podcast
About This Show
Nature Boy is a general science show hosted by four PhD graduate students studying plant biology at UC Riverside. Join Marvelous Michael, Mad Marschall, Jaunty Jess and Jon 'The J Bomb' the first Sunday of each month as research from varied fields is discussed, made digestible, and often criticized. An irreverent look at the often overly revered field of scientific research.
Nature Boy is also broadcast as a radio show in China Town (Los Angeles) over the prestigious AM bandwidth. More information can be found at kchungradio.org. DJ Michael, the Nature Boy himself, will be spinning hot wax and dropping mad science throughout episodes.

Jon's incredible powers of procrastination cause exasperation when the podcast nation can't hear this station! Apologies for the delayed upload, and for the absence of your favorite co-host and composer of episode descriptions, the J Train! The geneclock genetics and genetocs, and this episode focuses on the former. Can genetic research save us from starvation? Will it rid us of disease? Or will it be leveraged by powerful corporations to impose claims of ownership on entire species? Maybe these questions are addressed in this episode, I was not there, but surely the Nature Boy crew will bring the noise and deliver the answers you crave!
