Tyler’s got the dots... let’s get to connecting them! He leads the Overground crew on a guided tour of the origin of psychedelic drugs and the emerging science about how they may offer new hope for people with debilitating mental illness.

Joe’s calling it: The U.S. silicon solar panel party is over. Done. Last one out please turn off the lights... ‘cause we’re all heading to the Overground after-party! Join the Overground as they discuss how to level-up" current solar technology and the truly wide-open future of electricity generation, which may or may not include a giant Acme-style magnifying glass hanging off the moon.

Did you know that you’re living in the biotechnology century? Decades of innovation have made DNA sequencing cheap and easy, littering the world with piles of genetic code. Tyler guides the Overground through the innovative software applications that turns piles of sequence data into clinically relevant information. Join the crew they discuss how bioinformatics detects diseases, keeps you healthy and why we have a spleen.

Set your minds for blown as Joe leads the Overground through the latest on quantum computing and something involving a cat in a meow-proof box. Also, if no one listens to a quantum podcast, then the podcast both exists and doesn’t exist at the same time...unless there’s a dead cat in a box? You should probably just listen to this one for yourself.

Are your lazy houseplants judging you? Put them to work! When your ficus tree turns purple, you’ll know you have a deadly radon leak. The University of Tennessee is working on plants capable of sensing changes in the environment and alerting their human caretakers. And it’s Tyler’s favorite way to beat seasonal affective disorder: life-affirming, indoor greenery!

Live! From the llama pit at the Wylie Park Zoo in beautiful Aberdeen, South Dakota, (in spirit) the Overground crew explains why the flu vaccine only works 30% of the time. Tyler explains how sneaky the flu really is, how a new invention from the University of South Dakota may make a better vaccine and why llama’s don’t get the flu, but if they do...

Happy birthday Bayh-Dole! The Overground crew celebrates the law that created university technology transfer and closes out 2018 with hard hitting questions: Why are we so fat? Can technology change our daily behavior? When do the things we do become our legacies? Is that robot inside you doing surgery? Thank you to everyone who listened in Overground’s freshman year. We left our yearbook in our locker so you’ll just have to come find us again next year.

The obvious common thread between batteries and English muffins is, of course, contact lenses. An unusually high-energy Joe unravels that mystery after whining about battery chemistry and how it basically remains unchanged from Thomas Edison's ideas more than 100 years ago. The crew discusses Innovative power storage technologies await us in the form of…supercapacitors!

We live in a brief moment where bacterial infections do not routinely kill people...which is coming to a close. Each day, the medicines we use to treat bacterial infection are getting a little less effective and there are not enough new drugs coming to market. The Overground crew discuss a technology that uses viruses to kill bacterial infections, and the hard choices that confront new technologies throughout the world.

Featured Technology: Phage Lysins https://www.rockefeller.edu/technology-transfer/technologies/infectiousdiseases/fischettilysins/; future technologies to come from UC San Diego Center for Innovative Phage Applications and Therapeutics https://medschool.ucsd.edu/som/medicine/divisions/idgph/research/center-innovative-phage-applications-and-therapeutics/Pages/default.aspx

The Overground takes a moment to discuss an example of what Universities should aspire to: Creating actual things that touch people’s lives. Jonathan Vennerstrom, Ph.D., invented a new formulation for malaria drugs that will dramatically improve access to medicines…prevent the world's leading cause of death for children.

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
