NPR Science Desk reporter Adam Cole goes behind the scenes on his storytelling method, covering everything from Agatha Christie (and her lovely sister Madge), pregnant snakes and Purple Martins.
About the speaker
Adam Cole was born in the great state of Oregon and educated on a farm near San Francisco. He studied pregnant garter snakes, the physics of mussels, and cancer-causing genes before starting work as a newspaper reporter in a small dairy community. A youtube video about poop landed him a gig at NPR, and they haven’t been able to get rid of him since. Now he makes animations, videos, illustrations and radio for the science desk.
