The most interesting people in the world of science and technology.



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.

Ken and Dawn AMA

Truly wonderful episode with Ken and Dawn, bringing personal insights to the world of science and life in general. Their two AMA podcasts are critically important for many reasons, but in particular, they demonstrate how and why the pursuit of science and asking questions is truly a human endeavor...real people inspired in their own personal way to contribute to a world of knowledge we all benefit from. Ken, Dawn, and their many guests on StemTalk bring to life very complicated and often complex topics simply by letting us listeners gain a little insight to the people and personalities behind the science..I finish listening to each new StemTalk wishing I could be in their lab, involved in their research, working with good, dedicated people who love what they do..

Passion

I discovered your podcast about two years ago and have since listened to every single episode (some of them 2 or 3 times). I only wish I had found this when I was in undergrad...but I digress as that was the 1980s. I am a physician with a strong interest in STEM and often incorporate episodes as a starting point for discussion with my students (clinical rotations in Internal Medicine). The passion, breadth and depth often inspires students to explore and then we are “down the rabbit hole”. Love it!!

Personally episode 90 struck a cord with me from Dawn’s comment about being a professional babysitter and seeing someone totally dedicated to his craft (hockey) to Ken’s musings on re-inventing himself. I did that very thing in 2009 and set myself to become the best physician I possibly could. I couldn’t be happier with the results and continue to push forward (starting Masters at Johns Hopkins).

Thanks for the inspiration and validation. You guys rock!!

How much do I love thee, stem talk?

How much do I love thee?

How much do I love thee, stem talk? Let me count the ways.
I love thee on the drive to work and sometimes on coffee breaks
My mind boggles, when listening to the guest’s scientific flight
For the ends of knowledge, wisdom, and inspiration
I use thee to aspire towards a graduate degree program, a delight
I smile freely at staying up to date on current research
Ken and Dawn ask great questions, makes my day bright
If only a stem talk t-shirt will come my way
I can then ignite the name of stem talk to my friends tonight
