Discussing venom with Radio 4’s Rutherford and Fry

Professor Nick Casewell, who leads the ADDovenom team at Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM), has taken part in a venom-themed episode of The Curious Cases of Rutherford & Fry.

The ‘Venomous Vendetta’ episode of the Radio 4 show was broadcast in November 2021, with Nick contributing alongside Steve Backshall, Dr. Ronald Jenner and Christie Wilcox.

The full episode can be heard here (BBC log-in required).

A clip of Nick and Ronald discussing ‘venom variations’ where, for example, “the same species of snake can have a different range of toxins in their venom over relatively small geographical areas,” is available here.
