    Pip Edwards - Walk on the guide side

    Pip Edwards - Walk on the guide side

    Pip Edwards transforms lives on a daily basis, one puppy at a time. She could hardly believe it when she landed her dream job (and almost everyone else's!) as a puppy education supervisor with the Royal Society for the Blind. Join us for her conversation with presenter Sarah Davidson as she explains the superpowers of a dog's nose, why she chose to work with animals instead of being an engineer, and the challenges of training people, as well as dogs!

    We also cover the unbelievable cuteness of three-week-old puppies, what it takes to train a puppy destined to assist in the community and what it was like to study animal science.

Join us for her conversation with presenter Sarah Davidson as she talks about her love of science, why she is happy to have let go of her childhood dream to travel to space and the study pathway that has led her to be in her element.

    Phoebe provides insight into her work forecasting for airports and areas all over NSW and the ACT, plus tells us what it was like to study space science and astrophysics.

    Jacob Maher – call of the wild

    Jacob Maher – call of the wild

    Ecologist Jacob Maher thinks you're a scientist. In fact, he believes we all are; "When people say they don't like science, it's like saying they don't like art. It's just so versatile, and I think we are all scientists in a way." Join us for his conversation with Sarah Davidson as he talks about sustainability in our urban environment, the different ways technology is changing the field of ecology and why we love charismatic animals! 

    We also cover the changing role of zoos in conservation, killer robot drones, and what it was like to study ecology.
