BlueSci Podcast

By Cambridge Uni Science Magazine

What's the latest in science these days? How can scientific advances help improve our world? And what's it like to be a scientist, anyway? Every two weeks we delve into the intersections between science, technology, and society, featuring guest researchers who present a fresh perspective on their work, what goes on behind the scenes, and the latest developments in their fields. Transcripts available: www.bluesci.co.uk/category/podcast/ Brought to you by the Cambridge University Science Magazine. Hosted by Ruby Coates and Simone Eizagirre. New episodes every other Monday.
