Matthew Shribman has accumulated over 25 million views across platforms for his ‘Science in the Bath’ series, available here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoSRNBi6F4jN0CYq-sRcOHQ
We talk about how birds literally ‘see’ the Earth’s magnetic field, and cover Twist Bioscience, a company that’s revolutionizing gene synthesis. Twist is working on DNA as a viable storage medium for computers, drug discovery, genetic sequencing and synthetic biology. This is a little more sciencey than usual, but I think you will enjoy!
