The Power of Synthetic Fibers

I recently spoke with Todd Bookman of WHYY’s The Pulse about nylon’s unlikely history and the lasting legacy of synthetic fibers. If you’d like to know more about the history of nylon, check out this piece I wrote forĀ Chemical HeritageĀ magazine back in my Chemical Heritage Foundation days.

The entire piece, on the scientific breakthrough behind modern fabrics, is worth a listen. Now go put on some Lycra and head out for a run!
