Listen to some of our brand new Fellows as they talk about their research and share where they will be spending their holidays – some even have a science twist. This episode also features some fascinating interviews with scientists from the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, which aims to reduce disaster risk by calling on scientists to work with governments and communities.
