Hope Jahren

Georgia Barrett

Well  we’re just about ready to put this year to bed, which means it’s time to look back and talk about some of the most interesting people we met over the past 12 months. That’s pretty easy when you do a program with the word “knowledge” in the title. This year was better than most: I got to meet the Fonz!

Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll listen again to my conversation with Henry Winkler about how he deals with dyslexia.

#1382: "Lab Girl"

Mar 16, 2017

Hope Jahren was one of those rare children who had a definite answer when someone asked her what she wanted to do when she grew up. She wanted to build her own lab, and work in it every day. Just like her father. Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll talk to Dr. Jahren about her book called Lab Girl, which talks about her science, her labs and her life.

We’ll also tour a new manufacturing institute in New York, and spend an Academic Minute hitting the slopes.
