What’s it like to be a COVID-19 researcher during the pandemic? How do scientists figure out what a virus looks like at a molecular level? In this episode of the (un)Scientific Method podcast, we sat down with MD/PhD student Dhiraj Mannar to learn about just that! He tells us about his exciting work in visualizing the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein by freezing and bombarding the protein with electrons, his unique path to science as a former mechanic, and the challenge of communicating novel science in a pandemic when the whole world is watching.

Serial is a podcast from Serial Productions, a New York Times company, hosted by Sarah Koenig. Serial unfolds one story - a true story - over the course of a whole season. The show follows the plot and characters wherever they lead, through many surprising twists and turns. Sarah won't know what happens at the end of the story until she gets there, not long before you get there with her. Each week she'll bring you the latest chapter, so it's important to listen in, starting with Episode 1. New episodes are released on Thursday mornings.
