Pituitary gland* It's a Glandular Thing: Real Science Radio hosts Bob Enyart and Fred Williams discuss a great article by Dr. Tommy Mitchell titled, Your Pituitary—A Miniscule Master, from the Winter 2013 issue of Answers magazine. The guys also discuss the difference between most organs and glands, and the difference between organelles, organs, and organisms.
