Glass with Charlie Murphy

Anna talks to artist Charlie Murphy about glass. We talk about how Charlie’s work as a photographer led to her fascination with glass, and her various subsequent projects using glass, including studies of light using chandeliers. Some of Charlie’s recent work focussed on embodying kisses in glass, and a collaboration which involved turning her own skin cells into brain cells. Find out more about Charlie and find links to her work on our website, www.rialtalk.com.

Brass with Steve Thompson

Anna Ploszajski talks to trombonist, composer, arranger and laser harpist Steve Thompson about brass. We talk the history of brass instruments (including a casual Ancient Egyptian cursed trumpet), what makes brass such a good material for things like trombones, and what musicians like Steve (and to a far lesser extent, Anna) look for from their brass. We also undertake the biggest and bravest ‘rial Talk experiment yet, where we - with the help of Andrea Sella - dip a trombone bell in liquid nitrogen just to see what happens. Big thanks to Andrea for providing the liquid nitrogen. You can see videos and images from this podcast on the 'rial Talk website, www.rialtalk.com. Check out Steve's band 1201_Alarm on Twitter @1201_Alarm and follow Steve at @SteveTMusic.

Collagen with Emma McCarthy

Anna Ploszajski talks to doctoral researcher Emma McCarthy about the material central to her research, collagen. We talk about how it can be used to make 3D scaffolds to grow new organs and skin, and where it sometimes comes from (rat tails, gross!). Anna briefly gets sidetracked talking about jellyfish, and then it’s back on track to debunk myths surrounding collagen’s use in diet and beauty products. Follow Emma on Twitter at @Emma_McCarthy4.
