    After a rather long half time break, Season 2 of the Science at the Local podcast kicks off with a return to our bold and amateurish experiment in format.

For those desperate for a return to interviews or other formats, fear not - fresh content awaits!

    Science at the Local S01E09 John Lesku

    06/12/2016 Duration: 26min

    Our most attended ever Science at the Local (so far) included a session on sleep science for humans. But what about the animal kingdom? John Lesku has been studying the sleep structure and habits of many wild animals and it's fascinating - it's so far from being a cure for insomnia that there's a nonzero probability* it'll give you insomnia.
