This week, we begin our chat by discussing why are planes shaped the way they are, why bullet trains' engines are elongated, and what sharks and professional swimmers have in common. We do this by delving into the colourful world of biomimicry - the science of finding solutions to human problems by searching nature's designs for answers.


And then we take a wide detour into the world of sports - specifically, the controversy surrounding the Nike Vaporfly shoes in the run-up to the Tokyo Olympics. Listen in for some fun facts and insights!
