Ed Yong: I Contain Multitudes with Radiolab's Robert Krulwich
Wednesday August 10: 7:00PM – 8:00PM
“Every one of us is a zoo in our own right - a colony enclosed within a single body. A multi-species collective. An entire world,” opens award-winning science writer Ed Yong’s new book, I CONTAIN MULTITUDES: The Microbes Within Us and a Grander View of Life.
The study of biology has been teaching us about how we live and function for hundreds of years, but only recently have microbes gained much-deserved attention. I CONTAIN MULTITUDES lets us explore that world for the first time, allowing us to see how microbes do everything from defending us from disease to guiding our behavior.
Join Ed, in conversation with Radiolab's Robert Krulwich, as we think a little smaller and make our minds a little broader.
