The Most Painful Plant in the World

Strange by Nature Podcast

Feb 28 2024 • 43 mins

This week Rachel kicks of the show talking about the bizarre theoretical phenomenon of Spaghettification, the process of your body being stretched out into a line of sub-atomic particles inside a black hole. Victoria then takes us to the ocean where we learn about how the ear-wax plugs of whales can teach us about their life-histories. Kirk then wraps it all up by telling us about the horrific experience of bing stung by the most painful plant in the world, the Gympie-Gympie.
