Profane, insane, and 100% primo science, Petri Dish is a no-BS podcast that explores the wildest subjects in modern science with clarity and evil joy. Hosted by Sean Allen, a Nanoparticle/Immunology Researcher, and Nathan Allen, his "screenwriter" brother, Petri Dish fuses hard science with a freewheeling and madcap conversational style. Cannabinoids, Plague, Cats, the dreaded Candiru, and the even more dreaded Covid-19: all these and more are dissected with intellect and irreverence, droppi ...
 
Oriental medicine was not developed in a laboratory. It does not advance through double-blind controlled studies, nor does it respond well to petri dish experimentation. Our medicine did not come from the statistical regression of randomized cohorts, but from the observation and treatment of individuals in their particular environment. It grows out of an embodied sense of understanding how life moves, unfolds, develops and declines. Medicine comes from continuous, thoughtful practice of what ...
 
Tahoe is a jewel in the Sierra Nevada, but climate change threatens to transform the region by the century’s end. CapRadio’s Ezra David Romero explores this petri dish for scientific research to see how Tahoe can help us confront the global climate crisis.

The Editorial's Heidi Legg brings you in-depth interviews with thought-leaders inside and around the cultural Petri dish we call Cambridge, MA. With Harvard, MIT, and a bevy of institutes and leading tech companies, we curate interviews that will change the way we look at the world and how we live. We think there is power in putting the Poet next to the Scientist, the Industrialist next to the Artist, and the Social Philanthropist next to the Techie to capture this moment in time.

Drawing insight from ZOOM, Amazon, Disney, Navy SEALS, NFL, NBA, Olympics, ESPN, Shark Tank, and Top Ivy Leagues, the Playmakers: ON PURPOSE podcast is an all-access pass to a purpose-centered tribe of leaders in business, sports, and life who are on a mission of meaning and impact. The show takes purpose from an out of reach North Star to a practical and tactical exploration of how we can step into each day, ON PURPOSE, where life no longer happens “to us”, it begins to happen “for us”.
