Episode 21 - Art & Science

November 9, 2017

Art and science. Left brain and right brain. Analytics and emotion. Science gives us explanations, but art gives those explanations meaning. Naturally, these disciplines overlap and have overlapped for as long as both have existed. Today we discuss a few prominent scientific illustrators throughout history, then we talk to Dr. Eliza Wolfson, microbiologist turned scientific illustrator. Plus, we get to nerd out a little about webcomics and graphic novels. Join us!

Episode 14 - Public Health and Climate Change

July 6, 2017

Can't we all just come to a consensus?  Well, most scientists have on the subject of climate change.  In this episode, we talk briefly about climate change and discuss how it impacts public health.  We interview Linda Rudolph, MD, MPH, the Director of the Center for Climate Change and Health at the Public Health Institute.  Dr. Rudolph discusses how we can harness the power of public health efforts to impact climate change and explains "health in all policies."  We also talk with Dayna Lazarus, a community organizer with Organize Florida.  Dayna is a passionate climate change and social justice advocate here in the Tampa Bay area.  We discuss what community organizing is and why it is important to moving policy forward in addressing issues like climate change.
