What would life be like without Parasitoid Wasps?

Tuesday 13th Dec 2016, 11.00am

This podcast is part of the The Big Questions series.

Our Festive episode of our Oxford Sparks podcast follows the traditional Christmas story of ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’. In our narration though, the role of George Bailey is played by the Parasitoid Wasp and its guardian angel is postdoctoral researcher Chris Jeffs. In this podcast as part of our Big Questions series, we ask the question: what would life be like if these insects didn’t exist?

Produced by Emily Elias. Music by John Lyons
