So when I found out that there's another podcast coming out, another one about women in science, I was over the moon!
Check out Superwomen in Science. "A biweekly podcast about the past, present and future of women in science". It's already on SoundCloud.
Superwomen in Science is hosted by Cordon Purcell and Nicole George, two graduate students based in Canada who have a strong passion for showcasing the amazing work that women in STEM do that sometimes just doesn't get talked about. "The Superwomen in Science Podcast aims to highlight a wide variety of different scientific endeavours, ranging from arts research to STEM fields," They said in their press release. "Each episode will include stories of past women, interviews with current women in science, and opportunities/organizations for future generations," They continued. "The goal of the podcast is to increase exposure of women in science, as motivation for young women entering scientific fields and to provide a supportive community for current lady scientists."
And you don't have to go into this podcast blind. They've released a five minute sneak peak of a couple their episodes, which you can listen to here! Both women have a very confident and steady voice that's easy and nice to listen to. Their intro is complete with adorable, quirky ukulele music, too and that sets the mood so well. And you can tell that they clearly know what their talking about, and their passion radiates throughout the preview. I can already tell that this will be a very fun and engaging new podcast to listen to.
