What?!? New podcast? They still do those?
Ya, I'm trying to finish a dissertation, here. I'm almost there, but this topic was so great we just had to record it. In this episode we're talking about pee.
2:00 - Don't Go in the Water: The Chemistry of Pee in the Pool.
6:00 - To Pee, Or Not To Pee: That is the #ChemSummer Question (Article by Lauren Wolf on peeing in the Ocean). Also, the link to the CDC report.
8:00 - An embarrassing story about my kid peeing in the pool.
10:00 - Sam, Dorea, and Chad discuss the question: Could a pee-sensitive dye exist. For the record, Sam and Chad have discussed this more since recording the episode and our opinions are a bit different. Send us your thoughts and maybe we'll have another episode to correct this part of the podcast!
15:00 - Beeturia: Peeing pink because you ate beets.
20:00 - The indicator that turns your pee blue. Sam doesn't want me to tell you the name. Google exists, though, so. . .
22:00 - Speaking of the color of your pee, why is your pee yellow? (Here's the wikipedia page for heme and bilirubin).
29:00 - The new mascot for the podcast, Billy Reuben.
31:00 - Fortnightly Scientist: Send us in who your favorite scientist is and why!
For this episode, our fortnightly scientist is Dr. Billy Reuben
This week we're suggesting you check out Astrarium, a great astronomy podcast and member of the Brachiolope Media Network!
