How many people there should be, Bioluminescent Algae, Cat offspring, Blood in space, Petrol Bowsers.
Enjoyed the eclectic mix of stuff in this podcast. I was suprised how much less of a part agriculture played in humanities numbers. Still think Norman Borlaug needs more recognition though. Weirdly what I most enjoyed was learning about the coil on petrol pumps. Someing I have seen every week yet never thought to ask why. Keep doing this great podcast, as long as you two still enjoy doing it, I'l always look forward to listening.

Norman Borlaug and the Green revolution is definitely not talked about enough. Without all the amazing work done in the 1970s there would be far fewer fed humans on Earth. Science mitigating what could have been a terrible tragedy before it happened.
There's a wonderful explanation video by Steve Mould on the Tube's about the bowser too : :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fT2KhJ8W-Kg
