I've shared several science podcasts on this blog in the past, but it's been several months since I've discussed a new one. The Story Collider Podcast is another great podcast in which scientists share their stories. Sometimes these are the stories of someone's rise from childhood to adulthood and how science influenced their life. Other times it's a funny or interesting story from a scientist's research career. All episodes are great and they're relatively short. We're all busy, but this podcast is usually no more than 15 minutes, making it easier to find time to listen.
As I write this, I'm actually listening to a recent Story Collider podcast with Saad Sarwana, a physicist. Point your kids to this podcast and they'll have a better idea of how science influences people of different ages, education, and scientific fields.
