It was an honor to represent our group and present our work for the Virtual Atomic, Molecular, and Optical physics Seminar series (VAMOS). The talk, "Radium ions and cold radioactive molecules", was recorded and can be conveniently watched on YouTube. I discuss our recent radium ion measurements, our progress with radium-based molecules, and some of the motivations for our research, as well as our plans moving forward. The post talk discussion (not recorded) with students, postdocs, and a few P.I.s was a highlight - lots of fun ideas were explored! Thank you to the VAMOS organizers for giving me this opportunity.
