Episode 101: Best of Distillations #5

Distillations logo

This month Distillations takes a step back to bring you some of our favorite segments from past episodes. First, we look at our show about public science from last September. Jen Dionisio tells us about Glenn Seaborg and his impact on getting science out to the general public back in his day. Next, thinking ahead to the fall, we travel back to our Autumn show from October, and Tori Indivero tells us about the agricultural three sisters. Finally, from an episode in January, producer Julie Caine takes us on a journey into the life of a young child with an incurable illness. Chemical Agent: Glenn Seaborg.
