Nature Podcast: Episodes

17 September: Gene therapy to correct colour blindness, droplets behaving weirdly, how warm temperatures in the past affected Greenland, and the evolution of sex chromosomes and live birth.
10 September: The genome behind the Irish potato famine, a new take on the Great Oxidation Event, how dying cells signal 'come-kill-me', and the week's news highlights.
3 September: The galaxy that eats others for breakfast, the oldest hand-axes in Europe, engineering our climate, and predicting 'tipping points'.
27 August: Gene therapy for mitochondrial mutations, a 'hot jupiter' spinning perilously close to its sun, science-themed songs for kids, toxicity testing, and a chance to win tickets to a private screening of the film Creation.
20 August: The search for gravity waves, rice 'snorkel' genes, the world's most famous fossil site, and the dark side of antioxidants.
Proteins that use metals to help them function are called metalloproteins. Join us as we learn how they choose their metal partners, what they use these metals for, and how studying them can help us explain everything from human diseases to the origin of life.
13 August: Glaciers, tectonic plates and mountain height, a mathematical packing problem solved, a history of hurricanes and the news round-up.
6 August: Burgeoning birth rates, the origin of cosmic rays, better models of pandemics and the economy, and jumping genes in the brain.
30 July: Mice made from induced stem cells, the early Earth's disordered insides, jellyfish stirring up the oceans, and Saturn's spinning speed.
23 July: Wild chimps show signs of AIDS-like disease, super-tiny lenses go beyond the limits of light, and we take another look at the light patterns in the Northern and Southern lights.
16 July: The Apollo moon landing, a new branch of archaeology for primates, where the contents of our asteroid belt came from, and two genomes of the parasite that causes schistosomiasis.
9 July: An anti-ageing drug for mammals, when and how our planet turned green, 20 years since the discovery of the cystic fibrosis gene, and scientists spot the most distant supernovae yet.
2 July: Stem cells and how to make them, how salamanders regrow their limbs, genetic variation and schizophrenia, and how plants keep carbon dioxide above a certain level.
Simon Singh: Science writer Simon Singh talks to Nature about his legal battle with the British Chiropractic Association and how UK libel laws affect science journalism.
The ONS Podcast highlights news and articles published in The Office for National Statistics, providing annual report anaylsis and statistics of UK economy and society.
25 June 2009: Science journalism special: how technology is changing scientific meetings, how science gets turned into front page news, and are science journalists cheerleaders or watchdogs?
18 June 2009: Sperm DNA packaging, how the Colorado Plateau got so high, a fake paper accepted by an open access journal, and our weekly round-up of science news.
11 June 2009: Typhoons that trigger earthquakes, the search for extra terrestrial life starts on Earth, worms that refuse to die, and possible planetary collisions.
4 June 2009: Entangling ions, reprogramming diseased cells, imaging and reality, and what Antarctica looks like beneath all that ice.
28 May 2009: Transgenic monkeys that glow green, quantum states that change as soon as you look at them, and a new approach to the war on cancer.
