The first show for 2011! Same banter, new format: instead of six science articles to vote on, now it’s a head-to-head match between James and Jorge. Two stories enter, one story leaves!

If this is your first exposure to the Friday News Feedbag… we’re glad to have you in the club. Welcome to Feedbag Nation, which stems from our weekly science news podcast that you can subscribe to here on iTunes and chat with fellow Feedbaggers on Facebook.

Once you listen to the show, please vote below for your favorite story.
