From the Judges
This podcast makes science and scientific researchers accessible. It also helps explain the impact this research has on our daily lives. The host is natural and the first-person style in the beginning of the show brings researchers to life and makes them human and accessible. The Q&A after the fact allows listeners, in some cases, to have some of their own questions answered.
