New Heads For New People is a show about how science isn't just about science. We tell stories about how the human drive to discover shapes history, fiction, and culture in all kinds of ways.
16: A Brief History Of Space Ice Cream
This week we visit the gift shop and go down the space ice cream rabbit hole. Where did freeze-dried ice cream come from? And why do we eat it? Featuring Astronaut Foods, Smithsonian Air & Space, and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles.
Fraud isn’t uncommon in science. Why people fake data or specimens is a more complicated question. This week we have a story about scientific fraud as revenge.

This week, we talk with some of the artisans that help make scientific research possible.

Fascinating topics and beautifully produced. Looking forward to many more!
I have loved every episode so far.
As a parent of Phd student in behavioral ecology or evolutionary biology (she doesn’t even know what to call herself yet) I am looking forward to learning more about the science world you call home. Of course she sent me the link to your site. Very well put together first few episodes. Best of luck
