Liz Lutgendorff presents this week’s show as James is under the weather. We look at research into dinosaur cannibalism, the big fight in academia over open access, why the RI perhaps isn’t worth preserving after all, and how creationists are taking over American classrooms. Also do we finally have elections for the House of Lords? And how the Brazilian nightclub fire could have been less deadly with some extra health and safety rules.
