Toughening Up With Turna & Tim
Featuring Turna Ray and Tim Franz
Former U.S. Navy Medic, Philosophy Student (Tim)

New York City, New York
Turna is a science journalist. She writes about how genomics is changing medicine. She was born in Calcutta, India and grew up in the US.
Tim was a medic in the United States Navy. As is often the case (um… not really!), he leveraged that into studying philosophy. He is on track to complete his Ph.D. in philosophy soon.
They live in New York City.
Turna loves to fish, because it involves a lot of quiet, patience, and slime.
He won’t dance, but he’s an expert crepe maker.
So far she’s only caught one fish. But it was such a monster sea bass that she’s okay with not hooking anything for a while.
Tim’s grandmother once challenged him to walk 100 steps on his hands — that is, while doing a hand stand. He did it. And went up the stairs doing it.
