Yes you read it right, Naked Stem Cells. On this episode we talk with the creator and host of The Naked Scientists; a website and podcast dedicated to all things science. We talk with Chris about his shows, and get his take on the stem cell field. As always we highlight the literature over the past few weeks talking about everything from the STAP drama, SCNT, stem cells to make new noses, how weed changes your brain, and cave insects with mixed up genitalia. Enjoy!
