about this episode

Scientific research is what will cure cancer, right? Not at this rate, says Richard Price. The peer review process is arduous, but doesn’t scrutinize papers closely. It takes 12-18 months for a potential breakthrough to get published. And many results thought to be game-changing can’t be reproduced in labs. Enter his company Academia. It’s a platform for academics to publish their research, and for members of the public to find it. That’s what most researchers want anyway, for their work to be freely accessible to drive innovation. Jason got mad when he sat down with Richard and learned about the many hurdles that stand in the way of publishing and sharing new ideas in science, engineering and more.
