About Us

The science podcast that'll eat your brain. Shabam! is a new type of science show that blends fictional stories with real science. If you love science but hate those awkward scientist interviews that involve graphs and confusing metaphors, you’re in luck. First off, Shabam! is an audio program - so no graphs. And second, through the magic of sound effects and music, you’ll hear stories that reveal the awesomeness in the world around us - like cellphones and vaccinations. In season one, our main story is about three kids separated from their parents during a Zombie apocalypse. Over the course of 10 episodes we follow their quest to reunite with their families. But their experience leads us to another conclusion - that there’s a lot of science all around us that we take for granted. And finally, you may be wondering whether we’ve added silly songs and jokes to make up for the fact that we can’t show you graphs. Yes we have. Also, we only interview cool scientists who aren't awkward, which means the whole family can enjoy it!

Latest Episodes

Connections - Episode 5

In this episode, we connect the dollar bill to the StarShip Enterprise. It’s time for another BIG connection..and this one involves all of us. Well, not literally that would be crazy (we can’t include 7.7 billion people on a 15-minute podcast episode) - it’s a metaphor! And a metaphor is like a simile in that it exists only in our minds......which is also part of the episode! (Literally.)

Connections - Episode 5

Connections - Episode 4

In this episode of connections we’re using the month of April as a reminder of the important connection shared by Ben Franklin and George Washington Carver. Hint: it’s not the glasses (Carver didn’t wear glasses so that is obviously wrong).

Connections - Episode 2

Connections - Episode 1

In this episode of Shabam Connections, we take you on a journey of tangents and non-sequiturs (actually that's what every episode of Connections is, since that's kind of the point). It's like 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon except we start with Zebras and end with an 18th century classical composer. Also, tidbits from the Zombie Medicine Conference, aquatic animals, whiskey, and Shakespeare. It's a wild ride!

Bonus 2 - School's Out! But This Episode Will Make You Love Homework

So, schools out and summer is here and no doubt there are a lot of listeners who are excited that they’re not sitting in a classroom or doing homework. Well, Shabam! is here to explain why doing homework and going to school is a luxury. Before 1938, if you were a kid who didn't have super wealthy parents, you’d probably be working…all day. Shabam will take you back less than a hundred years so you can appreciate last month.

S1:E10 - Part 2 - The Truth About The End

We find out how it all ends. The last piece of the puzzle falls into place as Nadine searches for answers. In this episode you’ll get more tips on how to hunt for monsters and seek out the truth. We turn our attention to the skies above Chicago and the trees on the Solomon Islands for a lively “bat chat.”

S1:E10 - Part 1 - The Truth About The End

The kids finally arrive at Vandenberg but the journey’s not over. In this episode we’ll show you how to sort out fake truths from real fakes, and “truthier trues” from less “truthier trues” (to start, stop using the word “impossible”). Yes, that sounds impossible...but it’s probably not. Also we’ll answer the question: Should you trust your best friend?
