Episode Description

This week on The Conduct Science Podcast join Mitch and Tom as they explore the world itself through plate tectonics and earthquakes… what’s the deal with them anyway? Off to a tangent hot start as per normal Mitch highlights new research that is allowing frogs to regrow functioning legs and Tom talks about the Streisand effect and its relevance this week. Heading into the facts the boys dig out some things you may not know about how Earth works before talking about their natural disaster experiences (not that disaster-y as it turns out). Mitch explains the structure of Earth while Tom talks about plate tectonics. Finally, the boys answer the question: what is an earthquake and what causes them? Lastly, the Richter scale is cast aside for new fancier way of measuring earthquakes. Music: MOKKA Music on YouTube
