STEM-Talk is an interview podcast show produced by the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition, a not-for-profit research lab pioneering ground-breaking technologies aimed at leveraging and extending human cognition, perception, locomotion and resilience. Twice a month, we talk to groundbreaking scientists, engineers and technologists. Our interviews focus on the science that our subjects are engaged with, as well as their careers, motivations, education, and passions. Think of them as “profiles in science.” Tune in every other Tuesday to our show—and if you like us, please write a review of STEM-talk on iTunes—and spread the word.

Orders of Magnitude more info than most science podcasts

I have been dreaming of a podcast like StemTalk for a long time!  Scientists interviewing scientists for no other reason than the sharing of science is ideal for those of us with above average science knowledge. In other podcasts featuring interviews with influencers, performance enhancers and celebrity doctors, the desire to reach a common denominator audience forces the interviewee to spend the first hour of the podcast "reinventing the wheel" for the listener.  For some of us, this means that in 90 minutes of podcast, we get barely a trickle of information that is new or useful, but mostly a waste of time.  StemTalk is more like a firehose of information including chats about the formative years of scientists which is fun as well. I it realised that only so much detail can be covered and anyone listening to this subject matter is smart enough to look up anything needed to fill in the gaps. Though I have no interest in AI or robotics, I listen to those interviews as well because I know Ken will eventually find a way to slip in a question about ketones. This could also be the basis of a great drinking game.  Watching the arc of Dawn and Ken grow as podcasters over the past 100 episodes has been a hoot, too.  Dawn rarely lapses into vocal fry these days, you can barely tell when they are reading now and though Ken still sounds like Disney's animatronic Al Gore imitating John Wayne, it has become an endearing quality. I thank them both for so much!

Goldilocks Zone of Science Podcasts

This is the Goldilocks Zone of science podcasts. For those of you who want lively interviews that don't skip over scientific detail, your ears will find this podcast "just right".

The hosts conduct interviews that are both insighful and delightful with their brilliant guests. The health and metabolism episodes have really helped me make informed lifestyle decisions, thank you.
