Episode 74: Best of Distillations #3 by Distillations Podcast

It’s almost the end of the summer; so the Distillations crew is taking a look back at some of our favorite episodes this week. First we return to our show about space science, as Jen Dionisio explains panspermia in the Chemical Agent. Next we explore taste with the Mystery Solved! segment from our episode on eating, and producer Aries Keck tells us about umami. Finally we revisit our cause-and-effect show by learning about pheromone perfumes. Gigi Naglak tells us all about it. Chemical Agent: Panspermia.
