Thanks dad!

Dad Ward, you are the real life ms. frizzle of my dreams. Thank you for weekly scratching my perpetual curiosity itch. You brighten my days and make my brain denser. Also, you win the world’s paper plate award for best analogies. Thanks for doing what you do, you special human!

Awesomeness

Maybe that’s a word maybe it’s not. But, this podcast is awesome. I just recently made the decision that I want to be a scientist. I’ve known about my love for science for awhile but, I couldn’t figure out what to do with it and this podcast has assured me that I’ve made an awesome decision. Thank you to Alie Ward for helping me make it through many days of my terrible job while being able to learn something awesome.
