Ep. 45 - Barstool Chat with Dr. Ainissa Ramirez

In this episode we get another chance to talk to Dr. Ainissa Ramirez, materials scientist and author of the book The Alchemy of Us: How Humans and Matter Transformed One Another. We learn more about her background, what a materials scientist does, and why she calls herself a "science evangelist." Here are some suggestions on how to buy the book (that don't involve Amazon). ******** Help support the podcast and live events!
