I participate in a variety of outreach activities when I can but my main passion is the a podcast I co-host called Science... sort of. We began the show in 2009 in Santa Cruz sitting around a table with a microphone plugged into a laptop, and now we've done over 200 episodes, featured all sorts of amazing guests, and are regularly downloaded in every continent (yes, even Antarctica, we have friends stationed there).
We also created a network of other science podcasts called the Brachiolope Media Network, I heartily recommend listening to all of them.
You can stream one of my recent favorite episodes below:
I also have been a guest, recurring or otherwise, on lots of different, and even non-science, podcasts. You can find a list of those shows here: Podcast Guesting (coming soon)
We occasionally do live shows, which are lots of fun! Check our various social media pages to see if there are upcoming shows. If you want us to perform a show near you, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
I was asked to give a webinar based on a conference presentation I gave at AGU's annual meeting in 2017. The presentation presents a sort of fictionalized "what if there really was a Jurassic Park? How would the paleontology community respond to these supposed dino clones?" and goes from there into some broader meditations on science outreach. You can watch the presentation by going to the link here: Dissecting Jurassic Park's Dinos
Guesting on other shows:
Podcasters tend to be a pretty welcoming bunch. I've had the chance to be on a number of other shows and I'm always grateful for the opportunity. Here's a smattering that I will do my darndest to keep up date. Interested in having me on your show? Get in touch here!
After giving a short talk for the Wyoming Humanities Council about my childhood love of cyptozoology and what that meant for my faith, I was asked to be on HumaNature podcast, which features "Real stories where humans and our habitat meet". It's a revealing episode, but one I'm proud to share.
My good friend Willow hosts and produces a podcast about the outdoors, and considering how much time I've spent with her in the wilds she was surprised to learn of my outdoor imposter syndrome. So I wrote and recorded this essay about my internal reluctance juxtaposed against my seeming comfort with the outdoors.
These are episodes that I actually wrote and produced from whole cloth, definitely a challenge given the loose nature of Science... sort of, but I think I rose to the occasion, and I hope you think so too!
