Trace Material

Production of six thirty-minute episodes on the social history of plastic products.

Parsons Healthy Materials Lab (HML) requests a grant in support of Trace Material, a serial podcast that explores the intersection of our lives and the lives of the materials that surround us. The podcast evolved from materials research in the Lab that identified a gap in understanding of the common materials that surround us, the history of their development and their intersection with our lives. The materials we surround ourselves with have a major impact on our health, but they also tell us complex human stories about the world we live in.
