June 22, 2020

 Today’s episode is with Professor Matthew Cobb of Manchester University. Matthew is a truly fascinating academic and author with a diverse set of interests that will have you hooked. Not only is he a professor of zoology, Matthew is somewhat a prolific author. He has written about all sorts of topics, ranging from the French resistance in ww2 to his latest book on the sense of Smell. His journey is truly remarkable, as he has gone from being a pioneer in scientific research on maggots to being awarded for his authentic writing.

As you can imagine, we had a lot to talk about. In light of the covid19 pandemic we discussed how smell has been considered a symptom of the disease and why that is. You will take away so much from this episode.
