SKRAPS is a science and technology podcast hosted by Arun Sridhar and JoJo Platt. Throughout our careers, we have been privy to some of the coolest behind-the-scenes stories of science. We decided to share those stories with you as told by the very people who are making significant breakthroughs in all areas of science and technology.
Science today, much like anything in life is all about the data, details, and specialisation. Many people cover the nitty-gritty details of how a research study was done or how a clinical study addresses or does not address a crucial issue. But we believe that science is much more than that. It is the story of a young girl who was an outstanding athlete but felt that doing fantastic science was the stronger calling. It is also about the immigrant student who landed on the shores of a new country and, barely knowing the first thing about how he would make it, he knew only that he would.
We aspire to bring the voice of these children way before they made it big; it is about their journeys, and not about the hosts.
This is our mission, to bring you these hard-earned, triumphant, teary, and sometimes gut-wrenching stories about people in science.
