The future is important! But what should be the most pressing future concerns for humanity? In a subversion of the usual format, Jack is joined by his grandparents, Sally and Philip Brentnall, to chat about the future and how it relates to climate change, overpopulation, the importance of education and how to get involved in politics. Sally and Philip are British-born Australians in their late 80s, and are exceptionally engaged and interested in current issues surrounding Australian politics and society. They're good grandparents.

Are we alone in the solar system? Jack is joined by Alastair Tait to chat about life on Mars and other places in our solar system. Alastair is a PhD student at Monash University in Melbourne, where he studies planetary geology and meteorites. You’re about to hear about his work, actually. Before he started his PhD, he was a regular contributor to the Young Australian Skeptics’ podcast "The Pseudoscientists". He’s basically moved onto better things.
