I recently had the chance to try out a new platform called Racket with my friend Maria Tarmoun, a fellow curator at Bookshlf who posts content across a spectrum of topics. Racket allows you to have brief (9 minute) conversations, sort of a mini-podcast. For this session Maria and I talked about a wide range of topics based on our Bookshlf science posts – from genome editing to philosophical conversations on whether viruses are “alive”. We even slipped in a little climate change.
Here is the link to the session: https://racket.com/mariatarmoun/rELyR
It was a lot of fun, and is a really easy platform to use, so I set up my own account which you can follow here. Look for more of these mini-podcasts from me in the new future. Let me know if there is a topic you would like to explore!
