It’s the end of the month, so that means we’re back with news! In this episode we discuss chronic traumatic encephaloptahy in football players, a potential vaccine for type 1 diabetes, and how the U.K. is stickin’ it to “alternative medicine”. And finally, in everybody’s favourite segment, we continue to test the limits of astrology.
Turns out it’s pretty limited. Still.
