Announcing our new podcast!

We’re excited to announce the brand-new This is What a Scientist Sounds Like podcast, which will also be featured on Spare the Rock, Spoil the Child, a nationally syndicated family radio show distributed by PRX.  

The series will feature scientists sharing what it is they do and how they ended up there. If you’re interested in participating, please contact us at submissions@lookslikescience.com and put “Podcast” in the subject line.

Kate, a geology postdoc in California. When I’m not using geochemistry to figure out what the climate was like in the deep past, I like hiking, pottery, good beer, and of course, watching out for rocks…

Jane Rigby is an astrophysicist at NASA, who studies how galaxies evolve with time and grow their black holes.  This photo was taken in Chile, where Jane has stayed awake for many nights making observations with one of the two telescopes behind her.

Hi, I’m Bridgette Clarkston. I’m a biologist who used to study seaweed but now I study people and how they learn. I’ve been lucky enough to discover several brand new species (of seaweed, not people) including a species I named after the filmmaker Tim Burton — Euthora timburtonii. My hobbies include impersonating Lego and dancing badly.

My name is Azul Pinochet Barros and I am majoring in biology (as well as philosophy) at Suffolk University. I have a passion for microbes and their chemical language and interactions. When I’m not in the lab I like to go on photography escapades, gear up with my wetsuit to go for a dive, and pull pranks on my sister.

This Is What A Scientist Looks Like is a project developed to challenge the stereotypical perception of a scientist.
