Listen to Chris talk about his life in science

A post by Chris RowanI was recently interviewed by Dr. Marie McNeely, host of the ‘People Behind the Science’ podcast – a show that lets scientists talk about their lives and experiences to provide a more rounded view of what scientists actually do in their day jobs, and outside of it. I had a great time talking about my life in science so far, and dispensing what meagre wisdom I’ve accumulated up to this point. Our discussion has now been posted, and I think it came out pretty well, mainly because Marie is a generous and articulate interviewer who managed to make me sound much more profound than I actually am.

Plus, anything that helps to establish scientists as fully-rounded human beings, rather than moustache-twirling villains or emotionless sociopaths, is worthy of support.
