Episode 008 – Polymers and Plastics

In this episode, we talk to Dr. Ryan VanHorn. Ryan is an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Allegheny College in Meadville, Pennsylvania. He tells us what a polymer is and why some are flexible, while others are brittle. We also chat about his story of becoming a professor at a small liberal arts college.

If you have any questions that you came up with after listening to this episode, send them in to us! We will answer them, and if we don’t know the answer we will bring Ryan back on to help us work through them!
