One more “best of” show while the Distillations team recoups. Segments on senescence from our October 2009 Autumn show, an interview with award-winning author Richard Holmes from our April 2009 show on Scientific Collaborations, and a personal essay about growing up as a rocketeer from our April 2009 show on Kid Science.
Month: August 2010
Every summer the Distillations crew takes a few weeks off to rest and replay some favorite segments from the past year. This “best of” episode includes an audio-rich profile of Glenn Seaborg from our Sept 2009 show on Public Science, a commentary on the Three Sisters – beans, corn, and squash from our October 2009 Autumn show, and Julie Caine’s emotion feature on Prednisone from our January 2010 show on Living with Illness.
