Life Solved in new podcast series
The University of Portsmouth is launching a major new podcast series called Life Solved next week.
In each weekly episode, researchers talk in-depth about the work they’re doing and how new ideas and innovations are changing everyday life for the many.
With the ideas unpacked in straight-talking chat, Life Solved is set to spark conversation for curious thinkers and those who like to be in the know on the latest innovations in technology, medicine, the environment, social theory and beyond.
Life Solved launches on Tuesday 28 July with a special Coronavirus episode where we hear from researchers discussing issues that have arisen as a result of the coronavirus pandemic; from a rise in domestic violence to struggles with anxiety and parenting under new conditions as well as the rapid medical advances to understand and fight the spread of disease.
We’re showing how our research is creating real-world change and exchanging knowledge as it happens.
In the following episodes of series one, we dive into the mental impact of drone warfare on military operators; explore how Britain’s hot summers could mean forest fires are a big feature of our future; investigate the huge health implications of little-understood cells in our neurological systems; and pick apart the out-dated law that could mean your will is far from watertight. New episodes will be available every Tuesday.
Professor Bob Nichol, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Research and Innovation, said: “We’re showing how our research is creating real-world change and exchanging knowledge as it happens. We’ll be discussing our hopes for how this work may be applied to our planet and society, from medicine to the environment, economies, businesses, cultures and communities.”
