Podcast Episode 011 – Marshall Thompson

My guest on this episode is Marshall Thompson, a friend, former co-worker from my Cognitect days, and fellow maker and learner. He is currently employed by the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy, where, as the name implies, he pursues no less lofty a goal than curing cancer.

This being Get Smarter and Make Stuff, we did not limit ourselves to talk of curing cancer, but bounced around to woodworking with our kids, Tool Night with friends, and the purpose and perils of academic research and publishing, among other things.

As I note at the beginning of the episode, we recorded at a party where there was rather a lot of background noise, and to top that off my microphone was acting up. So if you’re particularly sensitive to that kind of thing, you might want to skip this one. I promise I’ll do better next time. That said, you’d miss out on a really interesting conversation with a fascinating guest, so maybe don’t skip it after all. 🙂
