Talking Guts With Pajau Vangay
Synopsis: As our current exhibition, Guts: What Lies Within, comes to a close, we decided to take the topic in a more literal direction, and reached out to Pajau (PJ) Vangay, a researcher who's working on her PhD in Biomedical Informatics and Computational Biology. A lot of PJ's research revolves around our guts, or more specifically the microbes within them. On this week's podcast Lindsay and Jenny pick PJ's brain about all kinds of guts-related topics, like how our fixation on cleanliness might be changing our bodies, fecal transplants, how your microbiome might shape your life more thank you know, and how your pets can help build a microbiological bridge to a loved one, and more.
