Ants, Avatar and annoying celebrity novelists 28 January 2010

We explore the virtues of a greasy diet, ponder the link between Shakira and neuroscience, calculate the odds of finding a mate and find out what mould has in common with public transport. Plus a deconstruction of the scientists in 'Avatar', a round-up of the latest fiction news, and a pub interview with science blogger and Nature editor Henry Gee. Join Jenny and Richard in London for these stories and more from the world of science in art, literature and popular culture!
