Episode 37- Rebecca Coffey- Science and Lust
I chat with science writer Rebecca Coffey about her new book, Science and Lust. You can buy book here: SCIENCE AND LUST Headlines suggest humans have become a mindlessly lust-driven race. Hmmmm. Have we always been that way? And, if so, can intelligence and culture ever save us? To answer such questions, SCIENCE AND LUST, a new, “entertaining and envelope-pushing popular science”* book, takes the lens of evolutionary psychology to the #MeToo movement and a host of other current mating-and-madness issues. In twelve fun and fact-packed essays by science journalist and humorist Rebecca Coffey (Scientific American, Discover, and Psychology Today magazines as well as Vermont Public Radio). The most current essay, “The Human Ape” examines why even “good guys” sometimes act like apes. -Music- Jason Mraz, "I'm Yours"

Episode 36- Prof. Ramesh- 1000 Stem Women Project
I had the pleasure to speak with Prof. Ramesh Laungani! He is an Associate Professor of Biology at Doane University in Crete, Nebraska. His scientific research focuses on the impacts of both climate change and climate change mitigation strategies in grasslands. Specifically, he and his students examine how adding a substance called biochar to grassland soil can combat climate change by storing carbon for the long-term and how these biochar additions impact the structure and functioning of grassland plant communities. Additionally, he spearheaded a science communication project called the 1000 STEM Women Project (, which curates a library of 90-second scientist introduction videos for use in K-12 classrooms. The overall goal of the project is to diversify the view that students have of scientists and STEM careers. It was a fun episode!

Episode 31- Chris Everett- Wilmington on Fire
First show of season 2! It is Black History Month and I have the honor to share a conversation with award winning filmmaker Chris Everett. We talk about his award winning documentary "Wilmington on Fire". "The Wilmington Massacre was a bloody attack on the African-American community by a heavily armed white mob with the support of the North Carolina Democratic Party on November 10, 1898 in the port city of Wilmington, North Carolina. It is considered one of the only successful examples of a coup d'état in the United States that left countless numbers of African-American citizens dead and exiled from the city. This event was the spring board for the white supremacy movement and Jim Crow segregation throughout the state of North Carolina and the American South. “Wilmington on Fire” gives a compelling historical and present day look at this event showing how the violent overthrow of an existing government not only cemented white supremacy in the city of Wilmington and the state of North

Episode 32- Claudia- The. NanoTechGirl
A chill Sunday morning conversation with Claudia, aka The Nano Tech Girl. Claudia shares her experience as college student majoring in nanotechnology. We discuss the reason that she decided to return to Mexico to pursue her bachelors degree. Claudia is a go-getter; she was valedictorian of her high school in San Diego,Ca even though she was an exchange student and English is her second language. Claudia continuously pushes herself to achieve her goals no matter how daunting they may seem at first glance. We talk about the advice she gave her sister; when she asked Claudia how she overcame her fears as an exchange student in the US. One key take away from the conversation was Claudia's philosophy of embracing her humility. We also talk about nanotechnology in the film Black Panther. And when I share my feelings of anxiety from using social media, we briefly discuss the philosophy of human connectedness and how social media and the internet has changed what we consider normal or nat
