Pterosaurs, Quantum Computing, And Ultraprocessed Food With Scientific American Editor


Science writer and technology editor for the magazine Scientific American, Sophie Bushwick, joins the show to discuss the October issue of the magazine. The cover issue deals with new information acheived through mathematical models which expose terrifying flying monsters called Pterosaurs. She talks about quantum computers and the challenges to encryption of protected information as these quantum computers come onto the scene. Bushwick also discusses new findings that ultraprocessed food trigers neural responses in the brain that make the body feel hungry.
