Inspiring!

Hey guys I love the pod! I love what you guys are doing as science communicators and it’s actually inspired me to want to pursue science communication myself. I studied marine biology and I’m so passionate about it but never wanted to pursue research as most marine biologists do. I want to educate people but don’t want to be a teacher either, so through this podcast I’ve realized a career in science communication is perfect for me. And for that I thank you!

My New Favourite ✨

Greg and Mitch are such well spoken educators who balance scientific jargon and philosophical discussion with personal antidotes and a playful rapport. Honestly it makes my Wednesday and it’s so nice to feel like you’re expanding your mind while chatting with friends. 10/10 🥰
