jtothefuture ,

Great, informative podcast for children and adults alike!

We loved the biotech scientist episode , great song interludes and really easy to listen to! Jtothefuture has been inspired as he is keen to be a scientist - really liked the key analogy about the company’s work. Great questions too Gwen!
