029 - Science Goggles - Learn the fascinating Biochemical Facts Behind Alcohol

In this week's episode of the Beta Sandwich Science Podcast Karolina and the team discuss the science of alcohol. In 'Science Blast' we discuss: A new Malaria drug that targets PI4K to take down this insidious parasite; Whether or not scientists should be required to make their raw data available in the cloud; and how alcohol and caffeine affect the length of your telomeres.  In 'The Meat of the Sandwich' Karolina covers how alcohol is made and how it's metabolized and excreted from your body.  In 'Making the Grad' Del talks about how difficult it is to make in academia these days and what that means for you.
