Season 15
20m | Nov 29, 2023

This week in Weird News it is two groundbreaking stories at the frontiers of science and the unknown. First, join us as we explore a scientific marvel – the recovery of RNA from the extinct Thylacine, also known as the Tasmanian Tiger. What does this groundbreaking achievement mean for our understanding of life and extinction? Then, we journey beyond our planet to examine a tantalizing discovery that could redefine our search for extraterrestrial life. Scientists have detected a molecule, dimethyl sulphide (DMS), on a distant world – a molecule that, on Earth, is only produced by living organisms. Could this be the first real evidence of life beyond Earth? Tune in to "Blurry Hysteria" for a deep dive into these fascinating stories, where the lines between science, mystery, and the potential for life's existence in various forms blur intriguingly.
