Ep 11. When Artists and Scientists Collaborate

Art and science are often thought of as completely separate pursuits, but what happens when artists and scientists actually talk to each other? In this episode of the podcast, we interview Dr. Cathy Murphy about her experiences inviting art students to spend time in her chemistry lab at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

Some housekeeping news: Over the winter break, we will be moving the podcast to a new host. We’ll still link to each episode here on the blog, and we hope there will be minimal (or zero!) disruption for listeners. However, if you subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, there is a chance you will need to re-subscribe next month. We’ll post updates as we find out more!

Meanwhile, want more podcast episodes? You can find them all on our podcast page, or you can subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher. You can also find us on the National Science Foundation’s Science360 Radio network.
