BS in Science is a discussion with three engineers of the latest science news. We'll mention what caught our attention in the news, the possible ramifications and usually go off topic from there, because we're just BS-ing about science anyways. New episodes are available every Friday. If you have any topics we would like to discuss, or any comments in general, email us at bsinscience@gmail.com.
