    Racism, mangrove forests, and 450 million year old crabs with Nia Burnette

    Racism, mangrove forests, and 450 million year old crabs with Nia Burnette

    On this episode of the Nudibrains podcast I talk to my friend Nia who is an awesome scientist passionate about large vertebrates AND horseshoe crabs. As a Black scientist and survivor of Hurricane Katrina, Nia has experienced racism in education first hand and has some amazing advise for aspiring scientists. We talk about climate change and how environmental disasters disproportionately affect BIPOC communities first. Nia is inspiring and is going to do great things with her career!

    As clarification on affirmative action: Nia used language suggesting that BIPOC need to “catch up,” not in terms of being deficient, but in terms of being exposed to what is possible for BIPOC, given a long history of being shut out (I.e. of marine science)

    Nudibrains Season 2! - updates from season 1 guests

    Nudibrains Season 2! - updates from season 1 guests

    Hi everyone! This is the official launch of season 2 of the NudiBrains podcast. On this episode, I asked guests from last season to record a brief update about what they're up to. Some are starting new Ph.D.s, some advanced to candidacy, some are caring for themselves and others during this pandemic, and all of these things are great successes. I'm proud to see where these individuals have ended up in the last year or so and am thankful to consider these people friends. I wasn't able to get clips from everyone, but by following them on social media I know that they are doing great things and are all busy surviving the pandemic on top of trying to save the oceans too. Please leave a review and subscribe to the podcast for more; next week's episode is one of my favorites yet!

    Becoming a strawberry doctor, nematodes, and botany terminology with L-Dawg

    Becoming a strawberry doctor, nematodes, and botany terminology with L-Dawg

    Today I interviewed Lindsey, a Ph.D. candidate studying macrophomina charcoal rot on strawberries! She is amazingly kind and funny, I'd highly recommend following her on Instagram for tips on saving your pumpkin if you carve it too early and to understand why I called her L-Dawg in the podcast title.
