Show Notes

For the pilot episode of Choosing Science, we are going to learn about a Nobel Prize winner in Medicine who by all accounts of his school teachers shouldn't have even be able to pass a science test. He is a great example of inspiring rebellion and wholesome self acceptance, combined with pure curiosity and scientific passion.
