We’re still on a podcast break. Good news is that Tegan arrived well in her new home. Bad news is that Joram got himself a weird virus that will knock him out in 10, 9, 8, 7, …… Read more
Good news! Tegan successfully relocated herself and everything she holds dear to a new country. Bad news is, however, that the move still took too much time for us to properly record a real episode. You’ll have to make do with this little intermission, where Joram reads you a story we published in April this year. It’s about a superweed!… Read more
We’re continuing our break from proper episodes for a little longer.
To quench your thirst for plant science, we have another short story from the blog here on the podcast. This time, Tegan wrote about Arabidopsis ecotypes and Joram reads it to you.
Don’t worry, we will be back with our regular episodes in a few weeks. Until then, check out the blog for weekly stories from the world of plant research.
This week, we have bad news. No new episode from your favourite hosts of the Plants and Pipettes Podcast. Tegan went missing in a mountain of moving boxes several days ago, and Joram has a pacifier permanently attached to his face. So instead, we have this little filler for you.… Read more

Tegan was wearing beautiful earrings. Unfortunately for you, they happen to make a nice little clinking sound that you might or might not pick up from the recording. Also I had terrible discipline in touching noisy wrapping paper. We’re terribly sorry, but the episode is worth it, I promise. 😘
