This week, Claire speaks to zoologist Julie Old from Western Sydney University about finding out more about wombat populations and the threats they face, through the citizen science project WomSAT, which you can join at https://www.womsat.org.au/. And Chris talks to ecologist Hannah Fraser from the University of Melbourne about her new study on research reproducibility in which hundreds of researchers got different results after analysing the same sets of data.
