Dr Shane and Dr Jen welcome a group of Science Communication students to the studio - Emma, Nathan, Thor, Beck, Esther and Patrick. They talk about cane toad cannibalism, Dengue fever, and Google's driverless cars. They interview Dr John Moreau from the University of Melbourne's School of Earth Sciences - Geomicrobiology Group, about the interaction between microbes and the minerals and environmental conditions of the Earth (and, potentially, other planets and moons). They also speak about the scientific aspects of the WWII attack on Darwin, the recent passing of Benoit Mandelbrot, and the students' plans for the next stage of their careers.
