The Wire with Ximena: Wednesday April 12, 2017

The Wire with Ximena: Wednesday April 12, 2017

This week, Ximena & Adam hear about some exciting new developments being forged by groups in New Zealand: Generation Zero's new Zero Carbon Act, Greater Auckland's Congestion Free Network 2 proposal & new research coming out of the University of Otago that looks at growing human teeth. Allan Blackman pops in for a morbid episode Dear Science, where he fleshes out the nutritional benefits of cannibalism (or more correctly, the lack of them), as well as discussing the history and uses of chemical weapons. We also hear from the curator of an upcoming series of talks at AUT called Critical Conversations, which examine the different ways algorithms and code shape our everyday lives.
