For lovers of reading, writing, science and general communication. This podcast will aim at acknowledging the origins of metaphors/idioms and the importance of effective scientific communication. My ambition is to spread knowledge on how we articulate concepts and the creative aspect of diction. Most episodes will focus on the origins of expressions, words of high regard, and the meaning behind them. This can overall allow us to acknowledge that words have just as much power as actions.​ As ...

ASAB is a podcast about science fact and science fiction, hosted by two trans scientists: Tessa (astrobiology) and Charles (entomology). Every other week we talk to each other or with another trans scientist about research, interesting facts, whether aliens can be gay, science fiction, and maybe sometimes about being trans. Transcripts available on our website: asabpodcast.com.
 
When we think about science, we often hear about amazing discoveries, but rarely hear about the struggles, personal accomplishments, and personalities of the scientists behind the data. On Deeper than Data with Ben Rush, we explore the personal journeys, failures, and successes of scientists through storytelling and humor. You’ll walk away with touching stories, life lessons, and feeling inspired through conversational interviews and improvised games.
 
We (Julia and Jonathan) happen to be academics and also happen to be psychologists studying speech perception. We want to make awesome science, make science awesome, and share what we’ve learned with a broad audience. In The Juice and the Squeeze, we peel apart issues in our careers and beyond (e.g., prioritizing, imposter syndrome, motivation, and more).

Some people say we’re all in the same boat; others say no, but we’re all in the same storm. Wherever you choose to focus the granularity of your inquiry, one thing is certain: we are all embedded in, acting on, and being acted upon by the same nested networks. Our fates are intertwined, but our destinies diverge like weather forecasts, hingeing on …
 
How society can adapt to climate change is an urgent challenge for the global community. Yet what exactly is that challenge? How can we imagine new ways to respond?

If you’re honest with yourself, you’re likely asking of the last two years: What happened?

One way to think about humankind’s response to COV…
 
This episode I discuss the science of social bonding- the process by which we form attachments.

Democracy is a quintessential complex system: citizens’ decisions shape each other’s in nonlinear and often unpredictable ways; the emergent institutions exert top-down regulation on the individuals and orgs that live together in a polity; feedback loops and tipping points abound.

What makes a satisfying explanation? Understanding and prediction are two different goals at odds with one another — think fundamental physics versus artificial neural networks — and even what defines a “simple” explanation varies from one person to another. Held in a kind of ecosystemic balance, these diverse approaches to seeking knowledge keep e…
 
In 2014, Steven Pinker published a piece in The Chronicle of Higher Education titled ‘Why academic writing stinks’.

We (Bethann and Virginia, not the collective ‘we’) actively resist the notion of “work-life balance”. It has too many vibes of work and life being mutually exclusive, as if they’re balanced against each other on a scale. And, in a lot of #SciComm, work and life are already so stinkin’ integrated. So, we lean into the framework of “work-life harmony…
