After years of animal-rights violence, scientists appear more willing to speak up for the value of experimentation with animals; shrinking stipends for doctoral students in the UK could be storing up trouble; and an Australian government report recommends extending the country’s demand-driven system to private institutions and to sub-bachelor’s courses: all this and more in this week’s issue review podcast.

John Elmes is joined by deputy features editor Paul Jump and reporter Holly Else.
