Mysterious fast radio bursts and long-lasting effects of childhood cancer treatments
Host Sarah Crespi talks with Staff Writer Daniel Clery about the many, many theories surrounding fast radio bursts—extremely fast, intense radio signals from outside the galaxy—and a new telescope coming online that may help sort them out. Also this week, Sarah talks with Staff Writer Jennifer Couzin-Frankel about her story on researchers’ attempts to tackle the long-term effects of pediatric cancer treatment. The survival rate for some pediatric cancers is as high as 90%, but many survivors have a host of health problems. Jennifer’s feature is part of a special section on pediatric cancer. This week’s episode was edited by Podigy. Download a transcript (PDF) Listen to previous podcasts. About the Science Podcast [Image: ESO/L. Calçada; Music: Jeffrey Cook]

Does a single-use plastics ban make sense? Would it work?
The oceans are clogged with plastics. Our recycling system is broken. Is it time to ban them wherever we can? The Liberal government's new proposal to ban single-use plastics "as soon as 2021" could make that happen—but there's an election in the way, not to mention that the proposal doesn't have overwhelming public support. But as we do on The Big Story, we'll attempt to explain what this would mean and how it would work for normal humans—the sort of people who have a plastic bag filled with other plastic bags under the sink, or go through a plastic fork and knife with every second workday lunch. Would this proposal actually help? Would it change behaviour? What are the alternatives to these plastic products? And what do the people who spend their lives fighting for cleaner oceans think of it? GUEST: Sarah King, head of Greenpeace Canada's Oceans and Plastics campaign
