Awesome Show!

I learned about Synthego because I have a podcast about cultured meat but I don’t personally have a science background. Crispr came up a lot when talking about scientists and this show helps fill me in on a lot of the happenings in the science world.

The information is amazing, the clacking keyboard, not so much lol

I love the podcast, but some sound deadening or mic isolation filters would make the experience much more enjoyable.
