Episode 54: IBAHCM’s May and June Highlights

 

The Naturally Speaking editors come together for another review of the research and news from the Institute. In a rare event, all five editors—James Burgon, Laurie Baker, Stephen Larcombe, Taya Forde and Karen Hotopp—join the discussion to look back at the highlights from May and June. Join us as we talk about new research, PhD successes, and staff promotions! We also celebrate our new logo, which we unveiled in May—we’re even on iTunes now!
