Today's show moves past the old stereotype of conflict between science and religion to find areas where they overlap. We chat with Jackie Duffin, a historian and hematologist at the University of Toronto, who inadvertently found herself making a case for sainthood. We wrap up the show with a look at the chemistry of zombies. Element of the Week? Pneuma.
