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.

One certainty in life is that it’s uncertain; we can’t accurately decipher how our stories unfold. But having an outline helps as we chart a course through the seasons of time. A key part of navigating the ever-changing phases of life is embracing the duality and non-duality within the cycles of yin and yang. It’s helpful to accept that there are d…

The ability to perceive with our hands, to assess the flow of life through the body, is a valued skill in East Asian medicine. It’s a fine and discerning art that takes full form when thinking does not overshadow; when cognitive understanding of anatomical landmarks combines with the attentive impressionable mind. To fully understand and interpret …

We took a break from our series on poisons, but we're back now to chat about organic poisons!

Everyday we sit with people in our clinic and puzzle through the questions of “What is going on for them,” “Can I see clearly what they need,” and “Do I understand how this person is an expression of yin/yang, heaven and earth?” Our patients have a story. And so do we, except we usually call it Chinese medicine theory and we are seeing if we can ta…

Adam and Michael discuss the crunchy combat of this year’s Sifu by Sloclap! Both hosts found the game’s ability to create the feeling of becoming powerful incredibly satisfying.

It’s a Wes month. This time we discuss his 2001 film The Royal Tenenbaums which looks at familial grief and dysfunction.
