I think we all should join the P.U.M.A initiative. Please Use More Acronyms. I can’t take credit for this amazing acronym, i heard it on another podcast.

Being half way through Michael Pollan's latest issue, I think it would be an interesting news item regarding the renewed (extensive and effective) use of psychedelics for addiction, mental health and end of life care.

There's been some of this during the discussions surrounding patent trolls, but I'd be interested in a more general deep dive on the effects of intellectual property laws on scientific and technological innovation. That is, is there any evidence to suggest that copyright and patents have either a stimulating or stifling effect on innovation, and if so, how compelling is that evidence, and under what conditions does it apply?

I'd love a segment in which Cara and Steve discuss the current state of research regarding how much of human behavior is nature vs nurture.  Also what counts as each, is the fetal environment and epigenetics nature or nurture?

A review and discussion of the current and future Carbon Capture options.

The following prompted my suggestion:

I was just re-listening to episode 232, which aired Jan 1, 2010.  In addition to the year wrap-up, you also did a decade wrap-up that discussed the wins and losses in skepticism and pseudo-science over the previous decade.  I really enjoyed that, and I think it would be even more interesting now that there is a decade (plus) of SGU to discuss, as well as things like the coining of the phrase "Science Based Medicine" and so much more.

Thats a really good suggestion, but I'm not sure the Rogues look at this topic anymore.

You may want to email them.
