    MCHH 424: Memoir of a mad scientist!

    Dr Smash and Dr Craken chat to marine biologist, artist and author Erin Andersen about her new sci-fi book "Memoir of a mad scientist". Some of the story about working for an evil Empire may resonate with those in academia! She also talks about another project she is working on: "Limitless heroics", a new source book for Dungeons and Dragons that gives rules for playing disabled and neurodivergent characters.

Science Nerd👩🏽‍🔬 ,

Omg so good

Ok I love this! I recommend it for people who like the ocean and also people who like to listen to other people being hilarious! But when I listened to the episode about if you made a movie about ocean problems I kinda wish there were sea turtles. Such a good podcast! Keep up the good work! 😃😃😃😃🐋🐋🐋🐋

5 Star! Future Episode Idea??

LOVE this podcast! This really helps me stay in tune with my passion of marine biology despite being a few hours from the ocean.

Wondering if it would be possible to shed some light on sustainable, eco friendly ideas for people who want to travel/scuba/explore marine biology while doing so with a conservation cautious mind?

I want to plan a few trips next year, but don’t want to be that ignorant tourist who says she loves marine biology but is harming it in the process of connecting with her passion. Any suggestions or tips for traveling would be greatly appreciated!

Savethisplanet ,

YAS!

Very entertaining and fun. I am not a scientist but I love the environment and I want to know what is going on, what I can do to help, and Andrew, Smash and Cracken bring so much information to the table. Keep it up guys!
