    Had trouble locating this episode. The web site for LOL only goes to 80. You asked for suggestions. I can provide a little input on any of the following topics: microscopy types, DIY biology, 3D printing, crowd sourcing research, coding (as in computers) and smart phone apps.

    The link to NBC Learn doesn’t work for me. Had to extract the site and type it in the URL bar.

    Jim – thanks for the alert on the broken NBC Learn link; it should be updated now.

    I am not sure what you mean on accessing the episode – you can download the episode directly at http://traffic.libsyn.com/wsst/LOL82.mp3. But the website has every episode – up through #82. You can click on the “episode” tab on the main webpage. Enjoy!
