Science lifestyle podcast that discusses crowdfunding , indie film, music, politics, randomness , education and everything science. We are all dope scientists! In this episode, our host Stephany Lowe and Raven Baxter aka Raven the Science Maven discuss the strength and freedom found in staying true to your authentic self. @RaventheScienceMaven is a Science Education PhD candidate (she majored in Molecular Biology undergrad), who got tired of #codeswitching in the lab and one day decided to write a song about it. #BigOleGeeks was born. A "scientific parody" of the hit song Big Ole Freaks by Megan Thee Stallion, Raven's goal is to reach more young people through STEM. In fact, she is currently creating an ENTIRE COLLEGE LEVEL STEM CURRICULUM for high school students to do just that. She also wants to prove that being Back and nerdy does not mean you can't be Black and sexy. And yes...scientists do twerk.

I chat with science writer Rebecca Coffey about her new book, Science and Lust. You can buy book here: www.scienceandlust.com SCIENCE AND LUST Headlines suggest humans have become a mindlessly lust-driven race. Hmmmm. Have we always been that way? And, if so, can intelligence and culture ever save us? To answer such questions, SCIENCE AND LUST, a new, “entertaining and envelope-pushing popular science”* book, takes the lens of evolutionary psychology to the #MeToo movement and a host of other current mating-and-madness issues. In twelve fun and fact-packed essays by science journalist and humorist Rebecca Coffey (Scientific American, Discover, and Psychology Today magazines as well as Vermont Public Radio). The most current essay, “The Human Ape” examines why even “good guys” sometimes act like apes. -Music- Jason Mraz, "I'm Yours" --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/the-dope-science-show/support

I had the pleasure to speak with Prof. Ramesh Laungani! He is an Associate Professor of Biology at Doane University in Crete, Nebraska. His scientific research focuses on the impacts of both climate change and climate change mitigation strategies in grasslands. Specifically, he and his students examine how adding a substance called biochar to grassland soil can combat climate change by storing carbon for the long-term and how these biochar additions impact the structure and functioning of grassland plant communities. Additionally, he spearheaded a science communication project called the 1000 STEM Women Project (flipgrid.com/7bad90), which curates a library of 90-second scientist introduction videos for use in K-12 classrooms. The overall goal of the project is to diversify the view that students have of scientists and STEM careers. It was a fun episode!
