E04 The One where we Smell Pee for Science

Did you know: Were it not for asparagus, wee might not exist?

Jonathan thinks he’s gravely ill and enlists the help of his friends to get to the bottom of it (in more ways than one). Alice gives the group a masterclass on how to get the most out of their leafy greens. This clip can be used as a springboard for a lesson on digestion, complete with analog digestion station, or as a very different science lesson, through heat transfer. They’ll also learn why some foods, like garlic and asparagus, give off pungent odours - both before, or after, they’re eaten.
