Epsiode 52: ants and careers! We chat with Magdalena Sorger on cool trapjaw ants, unusual career paths in academia, and getting into field work when you’re not prepared for it.
You can find more information about Magdalena’s research on website or by following her on Twitter, and be sure to check out her photos of exploding ants from Borneo!
Magdalena ended up sticking around for awhile longer talking with Tom & Morgan about her research. Enjoy the full discussion below.
In episode 51, we chat with the inspiring Karen James: geneticist, innovator in citizen science, co-founder and director of the Beagle project, and she nearly went into space. Frankly, after we post this episode, we’re all heading out to make something of ourselves.
