Straight to the facts. No BS
Love this podcast. Episodes aren’t massively long, they hit important and interesting topics in the world of science, and it’s all provided in a factual context that is refreshing to see these days. Great job UCS!
Dr. Elena Krieger Has horrible vocal fry
It’s amazing to me how somebody who apparently is as smart as Dr. Elena Krieger has so little self awareness of what she sounds like. It’s like listening to the Kardashians. Does she actually think she sounds cool or smarter.Sounds more like a teenager valley girl than an accomplished scientist. I had to stop listening even though what she was saying was important. Those who know her or have her on their show should do her a favor and play recording back to her so she can hear what she and the Kardashians sound like.
Inspired my Literature Review!
I nonchalantly played the episode on carbon emisions and rice over winter break and was blown away at the clear issues Dr. Liska experienced at the USDA. Now I’m reading his research and studying this further for my lit review!
As a future Registered Dietitian, this episode concerned me, since RD’s are supposed to lean heavily on USDA data. Thank you, UCS, for bringing light to such topics!
P.S. Dr. Liska is speaking at my university in a few months! So excited.
