Recent Paper Decent Puzzle

Recent Paper Decent Puzzle is a podcast with two parts: First, I pick apart a recent scientific journal article in enough detail that a non-expert listener would be able to speak intelligently about it. Then I present a decent puzzle, so the listener has something fun to work on until the answer is announced in the next episode.
