My beloved Brontopodcast! Okay, the joke is lame , but the podcast isn’t: it’s the awesome Brian Switek of Laelaps blog and Twitter fame and author of two great books on dinosaurs and the fossil record. I can’t even describe it, you’ll just have to watch it.
In Episode 32, we talk with Glendon Mellow (@symbiartic), science illustrator extraordinaire, about his work illustrating biology, copyright, visuals in science, and tattoos!
In episode 31 we talk to Stu Auld about host-parasite coevolution in Daphnia. If you like tales about crustaceans with parasites and gender issues, then this is the podcast for you! If not, it’s probably still the podcast for you, because Stu is awesome and funny. You can also find more about Stu and his research at his blog.
In episode 30 Anthony returns to turn the tables and ask *us* questions for #scifund! If you’ve ever wanted a look behind the scenes of Breaking Bio, this is the podcast for you.
In episode 29 we talk with Mike Kasumovic about spiders and crickets and video games – and that’s just the science! Plus, Mike’s tips on getting ahead in science and how to have a great academic beard.
Our guest Patty Jones from UT Austin joins us to talk about frog-eating bats, the joys of field work, and the crew hatches a plan to rid the world of Justin Bieber!
In Episode 27, we chat with the awesome Joshua Drew (@labroides) and even drop in on his graduate class to say ‘hi’. If you’re interested in awesome shark tooth weapons, communicating science, or the role of women in science, then this is the episode for you! Plus, bowties are *cool*.
In Episode 26 we talked with the awesome Siouxsie Wiles of the University of Auckland about bioluminesence and communicating science. Seriously, I can’t even describe how cool the squid are, and you’ll never look at a mouse with TB the same way either! (Well, if you had a way of looking at a mouse with TB to begin with, I suppose…)
* Siouxsie’s awesome squid video can be found here.
In Episode 25, we chat about all things gecko with Alyssa Stark (Ph.D. student at the University of Akron): gecko-inspired tape, swimming geckos, gecko harnesses, pet geckos, crapping geckos … the fun never stops. Join us to find out why it’s a bad idea to give your experimental animals names!
- For more information on Alyssa’s research, you can find her page here.
In episode 24, we chat with Anthony Salvagno (@thescienceofant), newly minted Ph.D in physics, about his thesis research on the effects of heavy water on living things (come, see the giant E. coli!) and his open science approach. It’s a great conversation, so have a listen!
