Episode 66: Why glaciers are melting in the Himalayas and rivers are flooding Pakistan
00:14:26 | September 29th, 2022

From faraway in space, if an alien happened to use a pair of binoculars, he might have easily mistaken Pakistan for a large river, or a bunch islands sticking out an inland sea. Certainly not for one of the most fertile lands growing fragrant and aromatic spices and rice.
More than a fifth of Pakistan is underwater and is witness to one of the largest natural catastrophes. Sadly Pakistan maybe paying the price of global warming despite contributing to less than 1% of global greenhouse emissions. 11-year old Pritika Mathur thinks this is unfair. Developed countries have benefited from industrial development and left developing countries to bear the brunt of the impact.

Epi 65: The father of science fiction and how he shaped modern Marvel and Geronimo Stilton works
00:14:39 | September 23rd, 2022

If you have heard of the 'time-machine', you are already familiar with the father of science fiction – H.G.Wells. When he wrote his works of science fiction, little may he have imagined that he was going to inspire generations of authors and children. Marvel and DC characters are richer thanks to the elements of science fiction woven into them – whether it is Iron Man's tech-fired suit or the ability of the Avengers to time travel.  The Magic Tree House series of books takes its young protagonists on trips through both space and time.  In this episode, a 11-year world bookworm – Vedant from Singapore, explains why he think H.G.Wells wrote some of his bizarre science fiction stories, and about the author's socialist ideals.

Epi 64: Space – Are we really going to the moon on the 'Artemis' missions?
00:15:08 | September 19th, 2022

Quite recently, NASA launched its next set of missions named 'Artemis' – the Greek Goddess of the moon, to send people once again back to the moon.
The last time we set foot on the moon, astronauts went aboard the space shuttle Apollo, who is the twin of the Greek Goddess Artemis. NASA's current mission to the moon hopes to take off from where Apollo left off.
In this episode, with a vibrant 7-year old Advik from India, we explore how this mission is also expected to bring greater racial and gender diversity to the space missions.
Advik adds colour to why Artemis Mission I has had some technical glitches and when it is expected to take off next. More updates on this space mission will be posted on our Instagram page. Follow us there to get more updates.

Epi 63: What does Queen Elizabeth II passing away mean for you and me
00:12:20 | September 15th, 2022

Queen Elizabeth II, the oldest reigning British monarch recently passed away. She had ruled Britain for over 70 years and had many firsts to her name. Including, the first monarch to send an email. If the word 'queen' brings to your mind images of a lady declaring wars and riding her army into the battleground, well, this is not the royal duty she discharged. Kings and queens in the modern world don't have the power they had earlier. In this episode, 11-year old Adya explains how they are really different.

Epi 62: Science – How an extinct Tasmanian tiger is being brought back to life
00:13:20 | September 11th, 2022

Jurassic Park is a movie (and book) filled with an equal measure of wonders and horrors. It's a story of a park filled with a group of extinct species – dinosaurs – brought to life. This episode contains a story quite similar – an extinct species of the Tasmanian tiger being brought back to life. The only difference is that this is real. It is not a piece of fiction – it is happening here and now. Ninth-grader Umang from DAV school, Durgapur speaks about the science behind this, and about how he feels about the very idea of an extinct species being brought back.

Epi 61: Science news – Why humans speak and gorillas shriek
00:13:24 | September 8th, 2022

Have you wondered why humans like you and I speak in long steady voices, while gorillas, apes and chimpanzees often bounce about trees and shriek in high-pitched voices?
Have you also wondered what would happen if you spoke in a shrill voice for a long time? Go ahead and try it. Or better, listen to this episode to find out what an 8-yr old boy called Devansh has found about this in a recent Science journal .
A group of scientists studied our vocal chords and compared it with that of primates. Somewhere along the way, humans alone seem to have lost vocal membranes. This loss could have been a key factor in helping us speak in low and steady voices.
This conversation between the host Sangeetha and our remarkably brilliant 8-yr old co-host Devansh, is entertaining and illuminating at the same time. You'd also know why Mary Poppins finds it so simple and easy to say – supercalifragilisticexpialidocious !!
