Margaret Wertheim is probably best known for her knitting. That is, as a scientist, you’re likely unfamiliar with her work. But her TEDtalk about hand-knit coral reefs has gone viral. Her conversation with Krista Tippett on the On Being podcast is called, The Grandeur and Limits of Science. You should download and listen to it.
