Hosts: Ed Brown, Penny Dumsday, Lucas Randall

[00:00:47] After a British teenager went blind, media reports came thick and fast about the dangers of a junk food diet. But was he just a fussy eater, or was there a lot more to it than the headlines suggested?

[00:07:50] Is climate change making spiders more aggressive? Well, yes – but only one species was studied and not aggressive in way that you’d expect.

[00:20:39] After a spectacular wall collapse last year, a crater on Hawaii’s Kīlauea volcano was left empty. And now it’s starting to refill, but not with lava.

[00:27:31] Could the search for extra-terrestrial life be easier if the aliens glowed? Under the right circumstances, bioluminescence could help us find life on other worlds.

This episode contains traces of KHON2 News’ Brigette Namata and Justin Cruz discussing the teenager who went blind from junk food.
