We’re back!!! We’ve had a crazy summer of travel, work, moving and all sort of other life events but we’ve finally gotten back into the groove of things. And that means new episodes! This week we’ve got a conversation with science writer Abby Olena. She talks about her Ph.D. in Developmental Biology, zebrafish and how, for her, the pen is mightier than the microscope. Take a listen and get inspired about science and how important science communication is!

After a much-too-long break we are finally back with another episode. Thanks for being patient! This episode is a fun one. We talk to Dr. Joanne Kamens, the executive director of Addgene. Addgene is a non-profit repository that was created to help scientists share plasmids. When scientists publish research papers, they deposit their associated plasmids at Addgene. Then, when other scientists read the publication, they have easy access to the plasmids needed to conduct future experiments. Joanne is also the founding member of the Massachusetts chapter of the Association for Women in Science (AWIS). Join us for this chat about biology, research, technology and running the ‘Amazon for plasmids.’

Aviation fans, rejoice! In today’s episode, we enter Mumu’s wheelhouse (propeller-house?) with a chat with The Drone Girl, Sally French. Actually, it’s Lindsay’s wheelhouse too. Sally is a journalist, blogger and all-around drone fanatic. We dig in to the latest FAA rules for pilots and flying, how drone tech has changed over the years and whether Amazon will be delivering by drone anytime soon. And maybe the best part, we declare a future of drone racing and obstacle courses, complete with nerf guns. Enjoy! Bonus video: Check out the kind of journalism that can be done with drones.

Dearest friends, we’re back with another episode! (Did you miss us?) With all the crazy weather going on these days, we thought we’d talk to someone who knows all about the atmosphere. Radar systems engineer Felisha Lawrence joins us for a chat about her job (well… what she’s allowed to say) at Northrop Grumman. We talk about atmospheric science, clouds, and how many times her friends ask her to predict the weather. Come for the radar, stay for the diplomatic crisis that could come from manipulating clouds.
