Join us in this experimental episode as our conversation turns inwards! Instead of finding out about the life and interests of someone from the field, we share some of our own views and anecdotes. We discuss a little about who we are, graduate school, the definition of the field, and more.
Hannah, the founder of molpigs, gives a bit of an insight into what the motivation for starting molpigs was and what they hope this project will achieve. Boya, our newsletter editor, explains how learning more about psychology is helping her to be a more effective researcher. Anastasia, who shares podcast editing duties with Hannah, gives some perspectives on how fundamental DNA is to the field of molecular programming. Georgeos, who manages our social media and money, tells us why he'd much rather be a scientist today than the 19th century.
We also give an update on the status of our sister project, the Molecular Programming Society, which is currently writing the ‘Art of Molecular Programming’ textbook. The project is rapidly growing to include dozens and dozens of members of our field. If you want to keep up-to-date with their progress, follow them on Twitter @MolProgSoc and subscribe to their newsletter.
