In Plain English is a podcast where we discuss scientific research in terms that are accessible to everyone, not just the experts. Every episode will feature an expert in a particular field of science, such as genetics or anthropology. The expert will then present a paper in their field, and the podcast guests--people without much knowledge of the subject--ask questions and discuss the research. Each episode will conclude with a broader discussion of how the paper’s findings impact society as a whole.
