    Cold Beers and Cool Water Make For Happy Corals (and Coral Scientists)

    Cold Beers and Cool Water Make For Happy Corals (and Coral Scientists)

    I can't help but be jealous of Chris Wall's field research. For his PhD, he got to live in Hawaii and snorkel/scuba through the reefs as 'research.' Granted, studying coral means contending with climate change in a very direct way.

    Fashion Film Framboise

    Fashion Film Framboise

    Academic research is all about digging deeply into a topic, often in an area that is actually the synthesis of several topics. Today's guest, Bianka, fits this interdisciplinary model to a T. She studies the intersection of movement, fashion, and film.

    Pints of Personality

    Pints of Personality

    Happy holidays! I recorded this episode with colleague and friend, Andrew Hall, just after our department party. While we both had plenty of snacks and drinks to enjoy, we did an admirable job staying on task to talk about personality research and how personality could impact health outcomes.

    Fake Brews

    Fake Brews

    Our brains are great at soaking up all sorts of information, but less good at updating that information. This can become a problem when it comes to the insidious nature of fake news. Thankfully, Nikita Salovich is on the case, studying how we cope with fake news.

    PS- early in the episode, Nikita says Chicago is the capital of Illinois as an example of a false fact. In this case, we're using fact to mean a statement that can be proven true or false.
