Talking Biotech: Insects, crop protection–and Barbara McClintock on the $10 bill?

& | September 22, 2015 |

This week we’re joined by Richard Levine, communications director for the Entomological Society of America. We discuss bees, butterflies, insecticides and some of the current issues in crop protection from an entomological perspective.

We then turn to the idea of promoting artwork using a science podcast, and the important effort to get Dr. Barbara McClintock on the ten dollar bill, replacing some guy. We discuss the barriers to her participation in science, and describe why she would be such a fitting presence on our currency — not just because she was a woman, not just because she was a scientist, but because she broken down barriers.
