Chicago Audio Works Podcast: Episode 3

Listen in as Steven Shapin, author of The Scientific Life: A Moral History of a Late Modern Vocation joins host Chris Gondek on the Chicago Audio Works podcast to discuss the cultural evolution of the scientific vocation from the early twentieth-century origins of corporate research laboratories to the high-flying scientific entrepreneurship of the present. How has this shift affected public perceptions of science? And what demands does this make on the individual character of scientists? Shapin addresses these questions and more in episode three of the Chicago Audio Works podcast.
