From The Biblio-Files

A blog-podcast hybrid format that showcases the work of various popular science and science fiction writers, creators, and thinkers from around the world. This project came from a desire to create and sustain a popular science writing book community that allowed readers to better engage in science by expanding their view of the author and the scientific content within the books.
