From Rosa: “This podcast series is intended to provide an inclusive view of the profession and practice of science (with a physics focus). Here, science is for everyone, regardless of background or identity, and the podcast will hopefully provide a good-humored but realistic view of the current state of the field. It is my wish that the experiences and views expressed will help inform and guide others taking this path, enlighten those that simply take an interest, and entertain everyone else.”
