Incredibly Informative & Engaging

Lisa does a fantastic job of hosting informative & free-flowing conversations with experts in a whole range of nanotechnology fields of interest.

As a layperson, it is easy to follow the engaging coverage of various topics without being too reductionist in the discussion.

The podcast is well produced and a pleasure to listen to.
