Grand Unified Weekly

A new science series from Slate V.

With all the time we now spend watching online video, who's got a few spare minutes to keep up with science news? Now you don't have to choose. Introducing "Grand Unified Weekly," Slate V's new series that harvests the wheat grass of news from the lab and distills it into a power-boost shot directly to your desktop.

Here's our premiere episode, covering the Obama approach to science (hint: he actually believes in it), the eternal sunshine of the mouse mind, and what science journals and People magazine have in common:

As the name of the series suggests, hosts Christie Nicholson and John Pavlus, along with our producing partners at Small Mammal Productions, will bring you a new episode each week. You can watch them at Slate V or on the slick new video player you'll now find on most Slate pages.

We'd love your feedback on the show. Send your thoughts to slatev@slate.com.
