Scientists are looking to Earth's most extreme environments for clues about what alien lifeforms might look like. The data they gather could help future space explorers to understand the origins of life in the universe.
In Antarctica, robots are helping scientists explore how life evolves in extreme environments. Such missions are dress-rehearsals for future space exploration to the ice-covered moons of Jupiter and Saturn, where alien life could be thriving.
This week, it's all about how we buy stuff and how that stuff gets to us. David, Joanna and Christopher bring on WSJ reporter Katie Bindley to talk about how to make sure you're getting the best deals on Amazon-and all the ways what you see on the page might not be what you think. Next, Julie Jargon, the team's new Family & Tech columnist, comes on to talk about a project she worked on before she took up her new gig: The Journal's Delivery Wars series looked at the tension between customers who want everything on their doorstep and businesses who want to actually make money. Finally, Christopher interviews Yariv Bash, CEO of Flytrex, about whether drones could one day deliver everything we need right into our hands.
Encore edition: The wars of the future will be fought in megacities around the world by soldiers connected - and possibly even augmented - by neural implants and AI. In this episode, we examine how military leaders are preparing for a radical shift in combat.

Algorithms are the new matchmakers. Apps have turned dating into a game. And unlimited options have confounded digitally savvy singles. We spoke to the technologists and social scientists reshaping romantic connection.
Shifting weather patterns and rising temperatures are altering what crops farmers can plant. In the last of a three-part series on climate, we examine how advancements in AI and genetics could help farms battle drought and crop disease.
As cattle farmers struggle with rising temperatures, scientists are scrambling to find solutions. In the second of a three-part series on climate, we meet a calf genetically engineered to withstand heat and get a taste of lab-grown beef.
Demand for wild seafood is rising-but so is the cost of bringing it ashore. In the first of a three-part series on climate, we meet the fishermen and scientists grappling with warming waters, shifting currents and rapidly changing economics.

NONE of these episodes are downloading. I've been trying for several weeks. I'm on Android, using the Castbox app. No problems with any other podcasts -- just this one.
