Podcast: Reporting on climate change, underfloor robots and the latest Fringe
In this edition: We discover Imperial’s involvement in the IPCC, meet underfloor robots and explore the Imperial universe at the latest Fringe.
The podcast is presented by Gareth Mitchell, a lecturer on Imperial’s MSc Science Communication course and the presenter of Click Radio on the BBC World Service, with contributions from our roving reporters in the Research Communications group.Download

News: The scale of childhood obesity, the magic of mushrooms and treating trench foot - We discuss a huge study revealing a tenfold increase in child and adolescent obesity worldwide, a small trial using magic mushrooms to treat depression and finally uncovering the causes of trench foot.
Imperial at the IPCC - We talk to Professor Jim Skea, an Imperial academic who co-chairs one of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Working Groups , about how his two worlds overlap.
Robots under the floorboards - We visit the factory where Q-bots are being built - helpful robots that get into crevices under floorboards and spray insulation, making old homes more energy efficient.
A tour around the Imperial universe - Fringe season is back! We commemorate the demise of Cassini with Imperial researchers investigating all things space.
