All this month, I’ve heard about the campaign to spread the news of podcasts called TryPod. As I am a voracious listener of podcasts (you can see the complete list of my current subscriptions and other recommendations on my podcast page), I figured I ought to participate while I can. So I will post about one of my favorite podcasts every day for the last 9 days of March.
The Story Collider allows scientists to tell the personal stories of their research, discoveries, and personal journeys in a way that allows them to share scientific knowledge with a novice audience as well as give a human face to scientific researchers. It’s a great project to bridge scientists with the general public, and there are some spectacular stories.
Here are a few of my favorites:
- Rochelle Williams: “Potential”
- Daniel Engber: “Distracting Mark Cuban”
- Meghan Groome: “Being Brave About Sex-Ed”
- Layne Jackson Hubbard: “Still Myself”
