#askACES Podcast

There's a lot of noise on social media these days about the environment, food, families, agriculture, health, and finances. And in the College of ACES, we have scientists available to discuss the topics on your mind and in the news.

Join us for our regular scheduled live Twitter chats using #askACES. During these one-hour chats, our ACES scientists will be online to answer your questions. We follow this chat with a taped podcast that you can go back and reference at any time. Our goal is simple—to connect you to the science and help answer your questions.
