The Naked Mole Rat (ft. Steve Cross)

Steve Cross, founder of geek comedy nights Bright Club and Science Showoff, takes us underground and into the lives of Naked Mole Rats. They may look like wrinkly sausages with teeth, but these amazing animals live in colonies like insects, wear their poo like perfume, live 10x longer than anything else their size, and never get cancer. Steve also shares his top tips for how to be funny, and we round off with our weekly science news.
