The March for Science was a global celebration of science. Attended across the world by scientists and non-scientists from every background. It was a demonstration of support for a field of work that affects our health, our economies and our planet. It was a vote of confidence for the importance of evidence. We spoke to three special guests about what the march meant to them. In part I, meet Paul Miller a.k.a. DJ Spooky - artist and friend of the sciences. Listen in to how he's inspired by researchers and mathematicians to bring their work to a wider audience.
Thank you to the wonderful staff at the Carnegie Institution for Science for use of their beautiful space and recording this podcast. Thanks to our taste of science DC team and the March for Science for putting together such a great event. Finally, Paul was not only generous with his time but his music - for this we are incredibly grateful. The track featured here is "Check Your Math" from his album Of Water and Ice which is freely available for you to listen to. All of the electronic sounds are generated by interpretations of either algorithms that mirror the geometry in ice crystals or the math of climate change data.
