December 15, 2017

Welcome to episode 22 of Viral. Sorry we've been gone for about a month, but we are back in the proverbial saddle (get ready for more animal puns) and ready to sink our teeth into a new topic. This week we discuss the link between veterinary medicine and public health. You
don't need hawk vision to see the link here, as we have been transmitting and receiving disease-causing pathogens to and from other species for thousands of years.

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!
