Ray Shillito is a scientist that spent the early part of his career in plant transformation, attempting novel approaches in the early 1980s. It was a time of rapid development of new techniques, and a race to move genes into plants with the goal of genetic improvement. Shillito shares his memories of that time and then touches on his recent passion – how to train scientists to prepare better presentations. In the second part of the podcast, I speak with Angie Adkin. Angie is a graduate student that hosts the All Creatures Podcast, and we discuss the value of creating new media and the associated career benefits and pitfalls.
