Science Writing as Storytelling (rebroadcast) – Ryan Kelly

6/8/2021
What matters more in getting cited — what you say or how you say it? In this remastered and remixed version of our first episode of the show, we're revisited by Ryan Kelly from the University of Washington's School of Marine and Environmental Affairs. He talks with us about his article "Narrative Style Influences Citation Frequency fin Climate Change Science," published in the December 2016 edition of the open-access journal PLoS One, along with co-authors Annie Hillier and Terrie Klinger.

Cold War Ice Core Reveals Historic Glacial Melt – Andrew Christ

5/11/2021
How did a Cold War era debacle help us better understand the dangers of climate change? In episode 99 of Parsing Science, we talk with Drew Christ from the University of Vermont about his research into how fossils plucked from forgotten experiment in the Arctic led to his discovery the last time Greenland’s glaciers completely melted, it happened under climate conditions very similar to the present day. His open access article “A multimillion-year-old record of Greenland vegetation and glacial history preserved in sediment beneath 1.4 km of ice at Camp Century,“ was published with multiple co-authors on March 30, 2021 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

DNA Evidence of Denisovan Interbreeding – João Teixeira

4/20/2021
What can DNA tell us about the migration of the earliest modern humans and other hominins? In episode 98 of Parsing Science, we talk with João Teixeira from the University of Adelaide about his research which examined the genomes of modern humans to investigate the interbreeding between ancient humans and modern human populations who arrived in Southeast Asia around 60,000 years ago. His article, “Widespread Denisovan ancestry in Island Southeast Asia but no evidence of substantial super-archaic hominin admixture,” was multiple coauthors and published on March 22, 2021 in Nature Ecology and Evolution.

The Dyatlov Pass Incident – Alexander Puzrin

4/6/2021
Can science help solve a real-life mystery? In episode 97 of Parsing Science, we talk with Alexander Puzrin from ETH Zurich about his research into The Dyatlov Pass incident, a 62-year-old mystery involving the deaths of nine hikers in the freezing Russian wilderness, a tragedy that’s been attributed to everything from a yeti to military weapons testing and an avalanche. His open access article “Mechanisms of slab avalanche release and impact in the Dyatlov Pass incident in 1959“ was co-authored with Johan Gaume and published on January 28, 2021 in the Nature journal, Communications Earth & Environment.

Monkey Business – Jean-Baptiste “JB” Leca

3/23/2021
Do monkeys know how much fruit your sunglasses are worth? In episode 96 of Parsing Science, we talk with Jean-Baptiste "JB" Leca from the University of Lethbridge's Department of Psychology about his field research observing interactions among macaques at a Hindu temple in Bali. There, the monkeys have learned to rob tourists of everything from smartphones to flip flops, and then barter their return to temple staff in exchange for food. His open-access article, “Acquisition of object-robbing and object/food-bartering behaviours: a culturally maintained token economy in free-ranging long-tailed macaques,” was coauthored with Noëlle Gunst, Matthew Gardiner and I. Nengah Wandia, and published on January 11, 2021 in Philosophical Transactions of the the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences.

Positively Negative – Shiri Melumad

3/9/2021
How much can you trust people's retelling of information the've read? In episode 95, Shiri Melumad from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business discusses her research showing that when – much like the children’s game “telephone” – news is repeatedly retold, it undergoes a stylistic transformation through which the original facts are increasingly replaced by opinions and interpretations, with a slant toward negativity. Her article “The dynamics of distortion: How successive summarization alters the retelling of news”, was published with Robert Meyer and Yoon Duk Kim, on January 7, 2021 in the Journal of Marketing Research.

How Mosquitoes Target Us – Zhilei Zhao & Lindy McBride

2/23/2021
Why do mosquitoes prefer us over other animals? In episode 94, we talk with Zhilei Zhao and Lindy McBride from Princeton about their research into how mosquitoes that can carry dangerous diseases - such as Zika, dengue, West Nile virus and malaria - are able to track us down so quickly while ignoring other warm-blooded animals; an ability they’ve developed in just the past few thousand years. Their preprint manuscript “Chemical signatures of human odour generate a unique neural code in the brain of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes,” was posted to BioRXiv with multiple other co-authors on November 2, 2020.

Epistemic Puzzles in ‘The Witness’ – Luke Cuddy

2/9/2021
What can a video game teach us about our epistemic philosophy? In episode 93, Luke Cuddy from Southwestern College’s philosophy program talks with us about the video game The Witness, which presents players with a multitude of increasingly sophisticated and frustrating puzzles that perhaps result from the theory of knowledge it reflects. His chapter "The Witness as Philosophy: How Knowledge Is Constructed," was published on July 21, 2020 in The Palgrave Handbook of Popular Culture as Philosophy.

Unintended Consequences of Legal Reforms – Ángela Zorro Medina

1/26/2021
What effect did copying the U.S.'s legal system have on Colombia's incarceration system? In episode 92, Ángela Zorro Medina from the University of Chicago discussed her research into how transitioning to an adversarial model of criminal procedure – one controlled by the prosecutor and defense, rather than by the judge and court – impacted the number of inmates detained before their court trials. Her open-access preprint manuscript "The Failed War on Pre-Trial Detention: Evidence from a Quasi-Experimental Reform," was published to Social Science Research Network (SSRN) on Oct. 23, 2020.

In episode 83, Manvir Singh from Harvard University's Department of Human Evolutionary Biology discusses his research into why shaman healers among the a group of people off the coast of Indonesia observe costly prohibitions, such abstinence or food restrictions, especially given that they could exploit their position for self-serving ends instead. His open-access article “Why do religious leaders observe costly prohibitions? Examining taboos on Mentawai shamans” was co-authored with Joseph Henrich and published on June 11, 2020 in the journal Evolutionary Human Sciences.
