Sarah and Jack go all-out depressing on this episode - it's a sad, sad world. Who shot down flight MH17? Was it an Illuminati plot? How are ants impacting climate change? Why will the Great Barrier Reef be not-so-great in a couple of decades? And what's the deal with apes?
Plus: throwing blood, barcoding with kids, and Jake Guy-lan-HAL on ice.

Jack and Sarah are finally back in the not-studio with science news, respiratory tract infections, and a phone with no batteries. Did you know organic food is better for you? (Or is it?) Dengue fever's fun too. And what's the difference between a macronutrient and a micronutrient? Find out, all in this episode!
Plus: AIDS, meteors, swearing, and poisonous gluten.
