Trace Material Podcast

Season 2: Plastics

A little over a century ago, plastic was born out of a test tube in a chemist’s garage and, in just a few generations, this material has grown to define our world. This season, we bring together diverse perspectives to tell the complex and nuanced story of plastics in the US. Through materials like PVC and products like Tupperware, we explore how plastics have transformed our bodies, our culture, and our environment.

Trace Materials is very well done. I can't wait to see what areas of interest are researched for future seasons! The plastics season was incredible! Great work!!
