Podcasts + microscopy = happy Mer

When sitting alone in a dark room for hours on end having a little aural stimulation helps pass the time. When the iPod was first introduced I knew it would greatly enhance my work life. I can't have a radio on in the dark room because the vibrations would affect my primary purpose for being there....watching cells in the microscope. While music does help while away the hours I have discovered something even better....podcasts! Music is nice but really it's just a distraction with podcasts I can keep my mind engaged on something...perhaps even LEARN something, while learning something about my cells in the microscope.

Yesterday I enjoyed a fantastic episode of Science Friday from NPR. The topic is on the use of biological organisms in the development of nanotechnology since molecular machines already exist inside of cells. You just have to know where to look, and to figure out how nature did it first.
