Scientists, Inc. along with our programs +taste of science and +2Scientists are proud partners of +March for Science. Read more on the reasons why in our statement below.

Taegan McMahon, of the University of Tampa, has pretty much grown up in the wild. Destined to become an ecologist, she studies fungal infections that are killing off entire frog populations, and she's run into jungles, crossed rapidly flowing rivers and battled crocodiles to do so! OK maybe battled is a slight exaggeration, but there seems to be little she won't do to protect her amphibious friends.

She was also a speaker at our annual science festival last year, where she brought out some of her test subjects for the audience to meet. If you'd like to find events like these in a city near you, head to the tasteofscience.org website to find out what will be going on between April 23rd - 28th.

We were happy to be back at our podcasting home at the New World Brewery for this one, thanks to them for welcoming us as always. The track featured on this recording is called "Frogs Legs Rag" by James Scott.

Peter Bentley is a scientist's scientist. A man who thinks you should only be doing science as long as you love it (as he does). His subjects of study range from brain networks to hunter-gatherers to autopilots on planes. He looks at how the natural world works through the medium of IT, and in turn how IT can benefit from how the world works.

Peter's love of science extends to writing numerous books on the subject and coming out to talk to us.

The guest track featured here is "Technology" by Chris Zabriskie. Thank you Chris for making your music available through creative commons! You can find more of his work on his Bandcamp page :https://chriszabriskie.bandcamp.com/.

A chicken, an alligator and a turtle walk into a lab...
Just a few of the weird and wonderful species that Richard Wingate uses to study the cerebellum or the "little brain". When not wearing his anatomist's hat, he explores the fine line between science and art working with artists and non scientists to find out how they see the world of scientific research. Stay tuned in to hear the tale of the mysterious headless chicken.
We're grateful to Glowdust for our featured track "April Showers", a fond reminder of fun times in Bielefeld. You can find more of their work at their site on their Bandcamp site: https://glowdust.bandcamp.com/.
Last, but certainly not least, we wish all our listeners a very happy, healthy and science-filled 2017!

Tis the season to be thankful, and we are, for our friend Mel and her return to Tampa. So to celebrate we wanted to re-release her podcast. The volcanologist who studies the earthquakes generated by volcanoes, in order to predict potential eruptions better. Mel's work requires her to spend a lot of time in close proximity to volatile, active volcanoes – even sacrificing her favorite sweater to collect a sample of rock from a lava flow. Can't handle the heat? Get out of the volcano... and listen to Mel's story in this podcast.

Enjoying the Olympics at the moment, but wondering about the science behind what makes olympians so extraordinary?

Scientific American explore this topic with a nice series of articles http://ow.ly/tcar3034JfD

It's the International Day of Friendship today so don't forget to send your bestie some love!

If you'd like some science to spice up your Saturday check out this article about how scientists used bananas & apples to show that like us, chimps trust their friends more than strangers.

One of our speakers was also a +2Scientists podcast guest.
We met with David Hastings, a professor of marine sciences and expert in climate change working at +Eckerd College. David was one of the #pint16 speakers at our +Pint of Science US festival last May but this time you will be able to see what he's got to say about the reasons to be concerned but also feel optimistic about our chances.
