UnDisciplined: The Nanotechnologist And The Environmental Social Scientist

This week on UnDisciplined, we're talking about really small things, like cell cultures and their effect on research, and really big things, like our planet's climate and its effect on human movement. 

Jason Shear joined us from the University of Texas at Austin. His recent article in the Journal of the American Chemical Society describes the development of a process by which we can change the size and shape of a cell culture. 

Also joining us is Jordan Smith, whose recent study in the Journal Sustainability demonstrates that bad air day's in Utah's valleys are pushing more people — and more cars — into areas of the state that have good air. Smith is the director of the Institute of Outdoor Recreation and Tourism at Utah State University.
