Podcast Q&A

Why did you start this show?

As Bunsen and Beaker's account grew on social media (Twitter esp) I found it frustrating to get complex science breakdowns across, so the Pawdcast was made. It's been a joyful journey!

What do you hope listeners gain from listening to your show?

Our show will teach you and get you up to speed on a couple of science news items, one from the general world of science, and the other from the research that's going on with your pets. We also interview an amazing guest and they talk with passion about their area of science. We also humanize the scientists by talking about their hobbies and love for PETS too!

Which episode should someone start with?

Our show has podcast proper episodes which are labelled seasons and episode numbers. We also put our live audio show recordings on The Science Pawdcast as bonus episodes. Honestly, I'd listen to Scichat with Dr. Katie O'Rielly. It's not one of our main episodes but it gives you a good idea of how we interview scientists and how much fun the show is.

Which have been your favourite episodes so far?

Season 5 Episode 8 had a two really fun science stories and then we got to talk to an agriculture scientist who really humanized the work scientists do in agriculture. It's excellent.

Which episode are you most proud of?

We strive to promote guests who are underrepresented in their field OR catch students finishing their PHD. So many are now DOCTORS and it's so amazing to talk to them, hear their passion and then see what they have gone on to do.

What is your vision for your show?

We want to be one of the top science podcasts in the world. Our unique blend of humour, empathy, and education is something the whole family can enjoy.

What is your favourite other podcast that isn't yours?

I adore The Skeptics Guide To The Galaxy and I honestly did pattern some of our early shows after it. Love those folks and what they do.

How did you come up with the name for your podcast?

Our dogs are named Bunsen and Beaker and Bunsen is a Berner so we love science puns.

Tell us a bit about yourself

I'm an award wining science educator and communicator. I have a day job (for now) in which I'm the science department head of my school and teach high school chemistry. I'm the dog dad of Bunsen and Beaker the science dogs on social media. Our Twitter account is one of the most engaged science communication accounts on the platform. It's very surreal!
