In this episode Liam and Stephen discuss the disciplinary divide between the natural sciences and the humanities, and ways we may or may not bridge that divide.

This discussion is inspired by Nina Sun Eidsheim’s ‘Maria Callas’s Waistline and the Organology of Voice’, in which Eidsheim constructs a feminist critique of the cultural yoking of Maria Callas’s voice and weight using an intriguing interdiscipline she describes as vocal organalogy. Check it out below, or on iTunes of your podcatcher of choice!
