A Scientist Walks Into A Bar

Episodes feature recordings of talks given at Science on Tap events held in Portland, OR, and Vancouver, WA.

Feb 5, 2020

Here's scientific proof that friends are good for you!

We're trying something new this episode. Listen as we chat with Lydia Denworth, author of Friendship: The Evolution, Biology, and Extraordinary Power of Life’s Fundamental Bond.

Then join us at Science on Tap at the Kiggins Theatre in Vancouver, WA on Wednesday, February 12 to hear her full talk.

We'll record that talk as well, so check back for the full episode in the next few months.

Also, you should definitely buy her book.

Thanks to Graham Tully for sound production.

As always, a final thanks to Jonathan Coulton for the use of his song "Mandelbrot Set" as our theme music.
