Episode Description

This week on The Conduct Science Podcast join Mitch and Tom as they explore antibiotics! What are they in the first place and why do they only affect bacteria? A rough ride in this episode with tangents here, there, and everywhere! But the boys pull through as they discuss the workings of bacteria and how antibiotics work. Later they debate the problem of antibiotic resistance and how we might be saved by the bacteriophage. Music by: Joakim Karud –
