On March 14th 2019, BingeWatch Academy: Superhero Science kicked off at TU Delft with Episode I where the focus was on impenetrable or bulletproof materials. Superheroes such as Luke Cage, Colossus, Superman, and Wonder Woman all have access to impenetrable materials but could we make such materials in the real world?

In this podcast, you'll hear more from those who spoke on this topic in Episode I. You'll hear from Jalila Essaïdi of BioArt Laboratories Eindhoven and her incredible work with spider silk and bulletproof skin. You'll also hear about the work of three TU Delft students - Leyi Hsu, Jeannet Liang, and Max Wouters - who worked on a responsible innovation project with regards to the use of spider-silk inspired materials in future healthcare.

New Avengers: Endgame Podcast Episode Online

March 14th 2019 was a great day in the world of superheroes.

First, BingeWatch Academy: Superhero Science Episode I took place at TU Delft with the theme for the first episode being impenetrable materials. Jalila Essaïdi of BioArt Laboratories, and Max Wouters, Leyi Hsu, and Jeannet Liang of TU Delft spoke about their exploration of spider silk for impenetrable materials and for healthcare. Over the last two days I have recorded some great podcast interviews with the speakers. You'll be able to listen to this podcast very soon!

The second great thing about March 14th 2019 was that the second trailer for Avengers: Endgame was released online. Avengers: Endgame is out in April 2019 and I for one cannot wait to see the film. As with all superhero trailers, I like to analyse the films and try to anticipate what we might see in the film. As a special bonus podcast episode of BingeWatch Academy: Superhero Science, I've put together my ideas on what the trailer might reveal for the upcoming film.

You can listen to the trailer on BW Science right now.

Or you can listen to the podcasts on iTunes and Spotify once they are approved there.

I hope you enjoy the podcast!

Think super!
