This week on The Method Section, join Tom as he explores why we age! Is aging an inherent process that we must go through? If so What mechanisms are in place that cause it to happen and why did those mechanisms evolve in the first place? Is it population control or is it just the selection of preferred early life characteristics that have bad late life consequences? What can we learn from looking at other animals about aging and will we be able to stop it in the next 50 years? Music by: Joakim Karud –

Hello! I am a graduate marine biologist heading into a specialization of marine mammals! Here at Conduct Science, I am the lead of Team Kilo, we produce articles and The Conduct Science Podcast hosted by myself and Mitch. Come listen to us talk about a whole variety of topics, new episodes every Thursday! I also host an interview series called Under the Microscope where I talk to scientists from around the world in many different fields about their experience, work, and methodologies. And as if that wasn’t enough content every Friday I release a short-form podcast called The Method Section, which is aimed at scientists old and new looking at the community, methodologies, and many other topical and interesting science news!
