Where’s my jetpack?

Hold That Thought is a podcast series produced by Arts & Sciences at Washington University that “aims to bring academic inquiry to a broader audience, with the unifying concept of exploring the many ways that researchers tackle issues affecting individuals, societies, and our worldwide community.” The podcast recently embarked on a series titled “Where’s My Jetpack,” which looks at why scientific innovation can seem so slow. Launched by the graduate student group ProSPER, the series has explored crossing the cross-disciplinary divide with Sarah Gehlert, whether the “research lifestyle” inhibits innovation, global health and how to form partnerships with Bill Powderly, and the practical side of innovation with Emre Toker.
