The world is always on the lookout for new drugs - but they're not easy to make. Synthesising them is often an expensive and prolonged process. But what if we could employ a miniature assistant to do it for us? That's what a team from the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology have come up with. They're managed to genetically reprogramme living cells …
 
Chris Berrow from the Naked Gaming Podcast team speaks to meteorologist Ben Rich about his favourite games, and what led him back to gaming after a break of more than 15 years! He loves the Nintendo Switch, and Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but isn't a huge fan of Final Fantasy VII. Blasphemy! There are also happy recollections from the Sega Megadrive…

This week, Charlotte Birkmanis is chilling out, as she answers Alan's cool question: "I have heard it said many times that no two snowflakes are the same. Given the billions and billions of them that have fallen to Earth, this really does seem unlikely. Since nobody has looked at them all, would you agree with me that the only thing to be said with…
