Brilliant, fun and filled with passion for science!

It seems like most science communicators are either failed scientists or journalists that do science because there is less competition for work. Alie is neither of these. She is brilliant, funny and has the serious mental horsepower to understand complex science and make it understandable and interesting without insulting the intelligence of the listener. She is truely gifted and her passion for science and the "ologists" makes this podcast something truly special. When I discovered it, I listened to nothing else until I got through all the episodes. Do yourself a favor and have a listen - you'll be instantly hooked.

Alie Ward is the absolute best.

Love love love this show. Makes my work day fly. I’m seriously considering moving to L.A. to try my best to marry Alie. (Just kidding, please don’t be creeped out.) I am a plumber and I know some of the history of plumbing and the ways that municipal waste and water have effected public health and I know you’ve touched on some of the history of plumbing but if you could find a plumbingologist (just made that up) I’d love a deep dive! You’re the best weird dad!
