Mark asks thoughtful questions and highlights some fascinating intersections between science and government, policy, data, technology, and people/organizations. I can’t recommend this podcast series highly enough, both as a listener and as a guest.

This podcast makes the science more accessible. As the world burns and floods - we need to engage science more than ever. Here is one place to get the latest!
