Timothy Jorgensen author of Spark: The Life of Electricity and the Electricity of Life | Dec. 9, 2021

In this episode of Cool Science Radio author Timothy Jorgensen will discuss the wild world of the electricity coursing through our bodies as he presents his new book, Spark: The Life of Electricity and the Electricity of Life. When we think of electricity, we don't often consider its essential role in the body and how it is central to life itself. Jorgensen, an author and a professor in the Departments of Radiation Medicine at Georgetown University, shares his biological view of electricity with tales from Benjamin Franklin to Elon Musk.
