The AlmaMAC Episode 136: Origins of life, grad life, and birding4lyfe with Sian Ford (Host: Adam)

Listen

This week I went for a walk and stood in a line with Sian Ford from the Earth Science department. We talked about her research on the origins of life. Specifically, how “lipid membranes” (the things that surround all the important junk in your cells) could have formed. We also talked about all the birding she does in her spare time.

You can follow her on Twitter at @sianford

I opened the show with a quick announcement of the winners of the 2019 Ig Nobel Prizes.

If you like what you heard, want to chat, or maybe want to be a guest, let me know on Twitter @adamfortais or by email at almamac@mcmaster.ca .​

See you next week!
