Stopped listening :(

Star Talk and NDgT used to be my favorite, but reading these women’s detailed stories of sexual assault from NDgT really took the magic out of Star Talk for me. Sadly, I haven’t heard him be accountable for it, and I wonder how many other women have been turned away from science for similar experiences and how we’re missing out on their contributions. I listen to “Ologies” and “Science Rules” now, because those science podcasts aren’t hosted by known rapists.
