Science Brunch is a podcast that features irreverent but mostly factual conversation about famous scientists and their discoveries, recent scientific events, and random science-y stuff. It is hosted by friendly neighborhood weirdos Katie McKissick (Beatrice the Biologist; science communicator) and Mae Prynce [INSERT CAREER HERE].
Episode 30 - Science News Roundup
No guest of honor today. Instead, we talk about some of the interesting happenings in the modern science world. And Katie tells us about her fossil dig!
Episode 29 - Percy Lavon Julian
You may have never heard of him, but African-American chemist Percy Lavon Julian is the guy you should thank for your hormonal birth control.
And life is just better when nerds name things!
Episode 28 - Mary Agnes Chase
Mary Agnes Chase struggled to begin her career in botany, so when she finally made the big time, she turned around to help other women and minorities succeed in the field.
Episode 27 - Carl Linnaeus
Botanist Carl Linnaeus had a noble goal: to create a new standardized system of naming all living creatures on the planet. But he was only human, after all, and couldn't resist immortalizing his enemies' names in some of the gross stuff he found in nature.
Episode 26 - Margaret Mead
Margaret Mead traveled the world to study and compare different cultures, in a quest to find out which parts of us are driven by nature and which by culture.
Episode 25 - Richard Feynman
Richard Feynman was a brilliant theoretical physicist who won a Nobel Prize and inspired his younger sister to a career in STEM -- but is he worthy of hero worship?

being introduced to so many scientists (as a scientist and brunch-enthusiast myself) is wonderful! i hope there’ll be more episodes soon!
Informative and hilarious!
I love this podcast and highly recommend it. If you’re looking to start out, my favorite episode is #12, but they’re all amazing!
I can’t wait for the next season!
Why has this not been on iTunes #1 chart?! These two ladies are hilarious and informative. It’s like listening to Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone if they were best friends and knew a lot about science.
