How to Breathe with No Air

The Queen of Nuclear Research...

… who very few people outside of physics know of. In fact, very few people INSIDE of physics know of her too! Greg tells Maren a trans-Pacific story of passion, dedication, and the work of a gifted scientist who fundamentally changed physics forever, yet (some say) was overlooked for the Nobel Prize.

The Queen of Nuclear Research...

The Admiral and the Moth

Maren tells Greg the story of a woman you've likely never heard of, who just happens to be responsible for the foundations of modern computing. Her innovations have made possible many of the things we take for granted today—like personal computing, stock market analysis, and commercialindustrialization.

A Case of Botanical Espionage

Grab a gin and tonic and enjoy this episode as Maren tells the story of a miraculous discovery, espionage and economic cartels all surrounding...a tree? A very special tree that cures malaria, and shaped the development of the modern world as we know it. (Fun fact, this ingredient is also found in tonic water!)

A Case of Botanical Espionage

An Annoying Noise

Perhaps the biggest accidental discovery story in the history of the universe. Well, definitely *about* the history of the universe. Greg tells Maren about a weird sound, and how two guys, Wilson & Penzias, figured out what it was, rocking the world of cosmology along the way. Expert: Professor Avi Loeb- Professor of Science at Harvard University, Chair of Harvard's Department of Astronomy, Founding Director of Harvard's Black Hole Initiative and Director of the Institute for Theory and Computation (ITC) within the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics Sources found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1a7l7jGQrtJ-n2RyxEGoza8vvWI8RVGGQj-JPpjjA0m0/edit Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers

An Annoying Noise

Here There Be Dragons

Meet the ‘Princess of Paleontology’ you’ve probably never heard of. Maren tells Greg all about the lady who’s life work was finding the fossils that would eventually change the way scientists thought about the entirety of Earth’s natural history despite getting very little official credit… Our expert: Andy Knoll Sources found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ZUYWN6PH6k83CAmYWS8wDhtM347ByJZj-rL7VntqLms/edit Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers
