I don’t have much of a formal scientific background; rather, I studied journalism, and I approach scientific topics from a storyteller’s perspective. Recently, I had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Mala Radhakrishnan, who comes from the opposite direction: she infuses her scientific subjects with artistic inspiration.
Occasionally I stumble upon a particularly ingenious art project, or game, or topic of news that I think you, the listener, might be interested in. Yesterday, I learned that the creators behind an exciting Kickstarter project had stumbled across me!
Hi ho, just a quick update between episodes for you dedicated readers of the blog. In this post, news on the 2018 Podcast Awards, and an art project of interest.
Much of the information presented in these episodes will remain accurate despite the unrelenting march of time. For instance, the sun will continue burning hydrogen into helium for billions of years (unless we have a deep and fundamental misunderstanding of physics, but I’ll take that chance).
But other topics may benefit from further updates as time goes on. To that end, here’s the first in an ongoing series of Element Updates.
