SmallTalk is a podcast series chatting about nanotechnology with leading scientists, thinkers, artists, writers, and visionaries, and look at quirky nanoscience stories in the news. Dr. Stephanie Chasteen, of the Exploratorium’s Teacher Institute, hosted this series in 2007. Podcase Episodes: • Nature’s Playing Field: Nanotechnology and Medicine Dr. Tejal Desai, UCSF and Dr. Thomas Murray, Hastings Center Running Time: 00:30:48 • Nanotechnology’s Role in Making Cheap Solar Power
Curious about nanotechnology, sustainability, or life in science? The Sustainable Nano podcast is produced by the Center for Sustainable Nanotechnology, a chemistry research center funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation. Episodes focus on what nanotechnology has to do with sustainability, car batteries, viruses, and more. The Center for Sustainable Nanotechnology is an initiative funded by the National Science Foundation to carry out research that will enable the development of sustainable, societally beneficial nanotechnologies.
Small Matters is an audio series that tells stories about the little things in life: chemistry. It’s an invisible world of crackling power and fundamental stability that lies deep within and all around us. Join us as we zoom in on what holds it all together — and sometimes blows it apart.
