A diamond in the ruff of a podcast

We need more women talking to and about women in science! Thank you Cara for making sure that you provide equal representation of men and women on the podcast, across all different kinds of subjects. Even as a scientist I learn so much from this podcast, and I am able to stay up to date on the latest scientific research and initiatives.

Excellent deep dive into lots of fantastic science topics

One of the few podcasts where I learn so much science knowledge that it fulfills my “enlightened” quotient for the day. I cannot get that from a 5-15 interview. Cara talks to so many brilliant scientists who share the exciting things happening in their research/field. I can always hear the enthusiasm of the guests as they explain what they have discovered. That passion for science is inflective. Cara is good at asking those intelligent questions that makes her guests want to talk more about their work. There are too many episodes where I wish they had a few hours more to talk about that topic.

State of the art SciCom

Cara's enthusiasm for science communication is downright contagious. She consistently gets really interesting guests on wide-ranging topics and does the kind of deep dive that podcasting is so well suited for. Talk Nerdy always bubbles to the top of my listening queue when it drops.
