Evidence Based Radio, 12/8/17

First off we talk about this year’s flu season. The H3N2 strain is known for causing more hospitalizations. So you should get your flu shot. Next I talk about how the supplement Biotin can skew some blood tests. We then move on to talk about the Nobel Prizes. First talking about the lack of female winners and then about the Nobel ‘disease’ wherein past winners are prone to adopting pseudoscientific beliefs. We then move on to talk about a new and odd dinosaur with aquatic traits. And finally we talk about two acoustic stories. First, eavesdropping on crows to decipher what their calls mean. And finally we talk about two researchers who are sonifying data, currently from hurricanes, in order to make the data easier to process. They hope that sonification of data will become more widely used.
