What if aging wasn’t inevtiable? What if being 90 felt pretty much the same as being 40, just with a few extra decades of life experience? And what if the science that gets us to that point in human history wasn’t the subject of speculative fiction — what if it was real?

This week on UnDisciplined, we’re talking about movement. Our first guest is a scientist whose research is helping us understand the ways the world’s largest animal moves its body. Our second guest is a researcher whose recent studies uncover the ways animals are moved as part of complex global trafficking networks. Frank Fish is a professor of biology and the head of the Liquid Life Lab at West Chester University in Pennsylvania. Emily Miller works at the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California,

Usually on UnDisciplined, we bring together two scientists to build interdisciplinary connections — but one of the research efforts we’re talking about is already really interdisciplinary. So this week, we’re going rogue. We’re going to talk about the intersection of human nature and technology. Joining us by phone from the North Carolina Institute for Climate Studies is Scott Stevens . He was the first author on a recent paper for the bulletin of the American Meteorological Society that adds a

This week on UnDisciplined, we’re talking about scientific puzzles. For instance, why is it that hundreds of tree species can exist within a single acre of rainforest, but the same species is almost never found next to itself? Or, here’s another one: Why is it that individual animals from the same species — dogs, for instance — can exhibit such tremendously different traits when it comes to aggressiveness?

For more than a year now, we’ve been bringing together researchers from different disciplines in our never-ending search to build interdisciplinary connections. That’s a lot of researchers, who are all doing a lot of really fascinating work — but we haven’t had a paleontologist on our program yet. So today, that’s going to change. Joining us today is Javier Luque , a postdoctoral fellow in the department of geology and geophysics at Yale University. He was the leader of an international team of

This week on UnDisciplined, we’re talking to researchers on two sides of a huge scientific challenge. Our first guest researches climate — that means she only has one test subject to work with: the Earth. Our second guest studies cancer, which presents differently in humans and other organisms. That means she has endless test subjects.
