This week the class had a very beneficial visit from one of MPR's incredible podcast hosts, Kerri Miller.  Kerri sat down with each domain research group from the science team to learn about the research that they've done thus far, and about where to go from there. She also fielded questions from the legal and media teams about how to form solid arguments, how to properly prepare for interviews, and how to effectively present information.  With her help, the resarch and work is continuing to grow in the right direction.
