Hosted by Danielle George and Mary-Ann Ochota, each of our six episodes asks the tough science communication questions: how? why? and so what?

Listen to Dr. Mitu Khandaker, Dr. John Orr, and Dr. Jason Vassy explore what happens when research and commercial interests collide.

Hear Monica Ramirez Andreotta, the director of Project Harvest, Esther Ngumbi, the founder of Oyeska Greens, and Nigel Zhang and Yinuo Wang of My H2O discuss how their projects connect research and community.
