This is a singular podcast that challenges the scientific enteprise in a simple and yet most profound way. Lady Science classifies science's facts differently.

The Phony Colonial History of Archaeology and Museums

This podcast was beyond awful. Full of errors and a smug "beating a dead horse" mentality about 19th century scholarship. While its title is abot archaeology is mostly talks about Sarah Baartman. Meira Gold was shockingly uninformed, from her misplaced praise of Horner and Hekekyan and dismissal of Petrie. She also spins a false narrative about the mask of Tutankhamun - the beard was re-attached badly by Museum technicians, not the Museum conservators who damaged it and a world renowened specialist conservator, who happened to be German was brought in to repair the damage, by the Egyptian authorities. There are many other things wrong about this ill-informed polemic.

Worth Your Time

Lady Science isn’t just a great feminist history of science podcast, it’s a great history of science podcast.

The hosts are engaging, entertaining, and well-informed. The guests are awesome as well! Topics cover a broad range of the history of science, but are always made to feel relevant to the present.

Give it a listen. You’ll probably get hooked.
