ACS’ Tiny Matters podcast series

Have you heard? The American Chemical Society recently launched Tiny Matters, a science podcast about things small in size but big in impact. Tune in for a two-part series on air pollution. The June 1 episode focuses on the 1952 Great Smog of London, environmental regulations that came from that disaster, and current air pollution tracking and mitigation strategies. The June 15 episode explores the health effects of air pollution following the Sept. 11 attacks and the scientists working to treat the first responders who were exposed. And just in time for summer, the June 29 episode is all about sharks — what makes them so unique, so important and so very misunderstood. 

Every other Wednesday, the Tiny Matters hosts uncover little stuff that makes big stuff possible. Tune in!

The American Chemical Society (ACS) is a nonprofit organization chartered by the U.S. Congress. ACS’ mission is to advance the broader chemistry enterprise and its practitioners for the benefit of Earth and all its people. The Society is a global leader in promoting excellence in science education and providing access to chemistry-related information and research through its multiple research solutions, peer-reviewed journals, scientific conferences, eBooks and weekly news periodical Chemical & Engineering News. ACS journals are among the most cited, most trusted and most read within the scientific literature; however, ACS itself does not conduct chemical research. As a leader in scientific information solutions, its CAS division partners with global innovators to accelerate breakthroughs by curating, connecting and analyzing the world’s scientific knowledge. ACS’ main offices are in Washington, D.C., and Columbus, Ohio.
