Conversations about Science Communication and Communicating Science


S08:E04, “Lab Girl” Edition, with Hope Jahren (audio)

Posted by jnshaumeyer on 28 December 2016

Streamed live on 23 November 2016.

Hope Jahren’s splendid book, Lab Girl, is already on most every list of notable books for 2016. Told in the form of a memoir, it’s an amazing tour of an adventurous and eventful career (so far), the surprising lives of plants, and what the frustrations and joys of scientific investigation and discovery really feel like. It’s not really possible to capture in this tiny space the wealth of information and insight that Hope’s book offers its readers. We talked about as much as we could fit into our hour and it felt like we barely got started. We also got to wave our arms around a couple of times when the lights went out.
