This week on the Brainwaves podcast: Gardening. It’s good for your physical health and your food budget. We have an interview with Chris Lowry, an associate professor of integrative physiology at CU Boulder, who wants to make a stress vaccine out of an unseen ingredient hidden deep in the soil.

We also talk to Jill Litt, a CU Boulder environmental health researcher, who’s traveled the world and found that getting your hands dirty is good for your neighborhood, too. And we join community gardener John Day on a tour of his plot.
