Music at the end from The Meeting Places with On Our Own.
Eric Kane, who was a guest on Professor blastoff twice, makes his way into the Space Cave for the first time to talk about his progress with his PhD in Molecular and Developmental Evolution at UNC Charlotte, living longer, and his thoughts on the future of humanity while sharing some delicious Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA. A chat with Carlos (@CarlosFugazi) kicks things off.
Music at the end from Diiv with How Long Have You Known.
Heather Wright and Katie Sanders are back for another chat. This time the PhD candidates from UC Irvine and I sit down with some home brew from their friend Bach Tran to talk more about their studies in cancer research. We get further into what we know about it, how it may be overcome, and what it’s like to proselytize on a plane. The beer is great, and the conversation is full of fascinating information.
Heather Wright and Katie Sanders (@BioCuriousKatie), who are each pursuing PhDs from UC Irvine in Cancer Biology, were nice enough to drive up and bring their own beer. We sat down with some Victoria Ale from Allagash Brewing and chatted about what we know about cancer, and what we can do to better understand it. A call to RJ (@cabbagetits) kicks things off, and a song from Matthew Robins closes it out. It’s another from his album ‘Noah’s Ark’ and it’s called “Are We Alone?”
The lyrics from the song are vaguely tangential to the conversation, and cancer research is particularly important to me after the passing of my friend Andy Ritchie on Thanksgiving. I hope we can find a way to beat this stupid disease.
