Save the Bees, Stop the Coal

Honeybee venom looks to have positive and dramatic application for the treatment of breast cancer. Anthony and Jeff discuss the details of this encouraging news, and how we need to save the bees. Then, the city of Centralia, Pennsylvania is on fire – and has been since 1962 – because subterranean coal continues to burn. 1500 people have left, but 10 stubborn souls remain. Jeff and Anthony try to figure out what would cause someone to stay, and delve into the interesting science that can be done in the aftermath.
