Knowledgeable; Introspective on true elites.

I’ve now binged on 300 episodes over two months. There is a lot of exciting research being done! It is fun to get a few tid-bits on what researchers are doing both in academia and private sectors.What I have found in all the episodes thus far, is that I have yet to hear of a person who’s had an average or low income upbringing. Every person interviewed has a large pedigree of top notch schooling. That isn’t bad but it is very telling that only a certain slice of people behind the science are being interviewed. Most hobbies I’ve heard are the same highbrow type responses and it gets old quick. The series isn’t as inspirational as it is semi informative. I see it more as a way for people to brag a bit about what they are doing rather than showing that they are not robots. That’s my opinion though! I’ll listen for interesting research topics, that’s all, though I could just view reddit.

Top notch!

Great info, done VERY well. I’ve listened to over 200 episodes and plan to hear all 500 or so in the next couple of months. I’ve purchased 5 books and printed scores of Wikipedia articles so far . . .

First experience with science

My daughters 8th birthday, she received a microscope, she is hooked, she enjoys me bringing home dead bugs to magnify. She is keeping a journal of everything she sees at the different magnifications. We have been listening to podcast for years at bed time. This is one that doesn’t put her right to sleep. It is super gratifying watching her as she is excited about the things she is “discovering “ OK so I am not a smart man, you could say I never lived up to my potential. All that being said thank you for this podcast and giving her examples of how to become a scientist and me a direction that I can help her along. You are the best. If possible say hi to Landrey Lyn, last name withheld. Thank you for giving a smart kid with dumb parents an avenue to learn to keep moving forward in science.

Perfect interviews

Dr. McNeely has a very nice interview style. Her calm voice and structure give the guest a relaxed environment to allow them to open up. She never ”umms” and ”ahs” or smacks her lips.. Nothing distracting. Her alto voice is very peaceful. Her guests are all very noteworthy scientists. She has no political ax to grind. I recommend this to everyone.
