There is an important part in recording a podcast and that is hitting the record button. As one of us missed that crucial input for this week’s episode, the sound is a bit… not great. Don’t worry though, the stories we tell are making up ten-fold for the lack audio quality. We talk about how scientists developed a way to use soap bubbles to pollinate plants!
