By Taylor Sparks and Andrew Falkowski

In this podcast we will be investigating materials science and engineering by exploring cutting edge materials technology, the history of different materials, the commercialization of new materials, and exciting advances in processing and characterization. We’ll be covering things like the unlikely discovery of superglue or teflon and we’ll also reveal the fascinating backstories about modern biomaterials like dialysis filters, we’ll update you on exciting new technologies including wearable electronics, next generation batteries, and nanomaterials. In short, we hope to help listeners understand the critical role that materials have played in society and even glimpse into what the future may hold for new materials.
