Amazing, confidence building as a feminist
I came across this podcast fortuitously on the internet and it changed my life 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 I have started focusing more specifically on feminist and queer interpretations of history of science in my conversations with friends, the discussions/talks/conferences I attend, in my writing, and in the topic of my PhD. I notice when I talk about my work in the ways that the hosts do, people really respond; so it’s great to see that this kind of strong, progressive feminism is so needed but many people in discussing science. Thank you for your hard, and untiring work!!
yay sciencey women
it's really great to have a load of female scientists in my ears talking about super interesting stuff
Scary concepts explained well
This is tightly produced, consistently interesting and chilling. Do give it a listen and don’t just write it off.
