Opinionated Science Episode 3: The Microbiome: Gut-Brain Connections and “Poo Pills”




Opinionated Science is Technology Networks’ homemade podcast, where our team of scientists-turned-journalists cut out the chewy jargon and serve up slices of the most fascinating stories from the world of science. Expect a new Opinionated Science every other Friday.
