Paradise Pecan ,

Tapping into my Inner STEM

Listening to Adam really helps me re-awaken my inner STEM by keeping me updated with the latest and greatest.

Fostering Joy ,

Fascinating

I am in awe of the interesting developments in STEM and how it impacts our world. I appreciate that Adam digests the articles bu also includes them in the show notes if I’m interested in going deeper. I am finding on several episodes my initial reaction to the content was fear, however with Adam sharing how the developments relate to current state, pros and cons really helped me appreciate the new developments. (For example VR surgery). I also appreciate the research and sourcing he does to frame each episode.

T Slabaugh ,

A host that is excited about what they are doing

You can really hear the enjoyment and enthusiasm Adam has for these “cool” topics. I really like his honest take on the items he presents, including the not so cool parts. It keeps it in perspective, Adams perspective that is, and he just really seems to enjoy bringing his audience content that is worthy of listening to. Great job Adam!
