    This week’s episode features our friend Hedge, who is a real live working scientist!  She does research at the U on circadian rhythms in mice.  Want to know what the hell that means?  She’ll tell you!  We also talked about the state of funding for scientific research which is, as you will imagine, pretty sad.  Eventually, she gets around to letting us know that her mice glow and then the whole conversation gets derailed because HOLY SHIT GLOWING MICE!
