A look at what chemistry is doing to improve our lives

I learned about this podcast through the American Chemical Society (of which I am a member) publication of C&E News, where they promoted their podcasts.

The first 12 episodes were presented in each month of 2008 and make up a stand-alone series. In 2009, several podcasts are added as updates to the initial series. These podcasts present new science that has come to light since the initial 12 episode series. The first 12 episodes are a little longer at around a half hour each, but the updates are short, less than 10 minutes. I started listening to this podcast about half-way through the first posting of the 12 episode series.

This podcast is informative, aimed at the general public that sometimes has a negative view of chemistry. This podcast is an interesting podcast, with a mixture of narration and interview. I also promote this podcast because my graduate work advisor appears in one of the 2009 updates regarding terrorists and bombs.
