Important, Not Important

A Science and Medicine podcast
Good podcast? Give it some love!
Worried the world’s going to hell in a handbasket? There’s still hope!

Our Webby-nominated, weekly conversational podcast dives into a question affecting everyone on the planet right now or in the next ten years: climate change, clean energy, space exploration, autonomous cars, artificial intelligence, antibiotics, cancer, and bio-tech.

Our guests are on the front lines: scientists, doctors, engineers, politicians — even a reverend. We work towards action steps our listeners can take with their voice, their vote, and their dollar.

Hosted by Quinn Emmett and Brian Colbert Kennedy.
