The overall theme is to explore the role of microbes as an inherent part of our culture and everyday life.
Through four themes: food, parenthood, wellbeing & health as well as microbes in art & fiction, we explore how we live with microbes, how we imagine them and how they affect us. We approach them from various perspectives: We talk to scientists about new knowledge about the ways of microbes in the gut, we talk to food activists and fine-dining chefs about fermentation and political perspectives on microbes in food. We explore feminist perspectives on parenthood and how they relate to microbes, we use various artistic approaches in order to see, if we can get a closer feeling about the microbial aspects of the world. And we ask what Freud would have made of the fact that microbes are also regulating our mood and feelings. Stay tuned to see how the podcast project develops!
