The Method is an open source, peer reviewed podcast about the state of science. We are a team of scientists and science-lovers who want to improve the quality, inclusivity, and productivity of our conversations about science.
Just as an open source community can improve the quality of code, we are creating a platform for the scientific community to improve the quality of our conversations about what is working in science and what is not.
