Tales from the Biosphere with Ed Yong

Science writer Ed Yong talks about Wolbachia, other symbioses, and the modern science communication ecosystem in this podcast. His story-based approach to Wolbachia biology and science in general is natural, entertaining, and understanding of the general audience who he is writing to. Ed has told a few stories about our research here (speciation) and here (antibiotic gene transfer), but you really get to know him in a speaking setting like this podcast. It's like your sitting in the room and getting an insight on Wolbachia biology and the dynamic job of a serious science journalist who thinks deliberately about how to write. Do listen for a few minutes...
