Ep. 13: Fiery Rites of Passage (Yoris et al., 2020)

In this episode, we say ‘goodbye’ to a good man, ‘‘hello’ to a new area of neuroscience research and ‘WHAT?!’ to our first guest’s thievery-heavy collider stories. You can watch Dr. Amy Sharma and her merry band of scientists-turned-comedians at Science Jazz Hands! March 23 at 8 PM.


To the best of our abilities, all the work we cite in the show is linked below. Please send any comments, questions, corrections, and/or capybaras to us via Twitter (@MissBehaviorJC).

  • Here is the C. elegans paper Leah talked about this episode (and thinks about every day): Mating and male pheromone kill Caenorhabditis males through distinct mechanisms (Shi, Runnels, & Murphy, 2017)
