Episode 48 – Don’t Be Such a Scientist

For our 100th podcast interview (including 52 interviews with Periodicity), we talk with former marine biologist turned filmmaker and author Randy Olson.  Since we last talked with Randy about Flock of Dodos, he has since put out another movie (Sizzle: A Global Warming Comedy) and a book (Don’t Be Such a Scientist: ).  We talk with Randy about his new book and the importance of how scientists communicate.

    I think the Barnacle movie is not appropriate for grade-school audiences. I would be more comfortable with an NSTA affiliation if the video was removed.
