We pretty much all accept the idea that dinosaurs once roamed the earth, but this wasn’t always the case. A few centuries ago, nobody believed animals could even go extinct. It would take huge societal upheaval and a few very determined oddballs to change people’s minds. In this episode, we follow the eccentric geologists and fossil-hunters who uncovered the first dinosaur, with author Ian Lendler as our guide.

This episode was written and produced by Arja Ray, Ben Mansky, and Nancy Cai. Ian’s book, The First Dinosaur: How Science Solved the Greatest Mystery on Earth, is available wherever books are sold.

In this episode, we’re getting into the weeds of cannabis research. Cannabis is the most widely used illegal drug in the world, but there is still so much we do not know about it.. To learn more, we spoke to two cannabis researchers: Dr. Steven Laviolette, a neurobiologist at The University of Western Ontario in London, Canada, and Dr. Salomeh Keyhani, a general internist and a health services researcher at UCSF’s Veteran Affairs Medical Center.

From our conversation with Steven, we got insight into his lab’s findings on THC and CBD as they relate to a number of neuropsychiatric disorders, his approaches to use these cannabis constituents to combat these disorders, the funding landscape of cannabis research, the Canadian cannabis industry, and his thoughts on the future of cannabis research. In our interview with Salomeh, we learned about her motivation to study cannabis, as well as her approaches to understand things ranging from its public perception to cardiovascular health effects.

This episode was written and produced by Stella Belonwu, and Seesha Takagishi. Music and sound effects from this episode were acquired from www.freesound.org.

It’s a tale (or tail?) as old as time. Sharks have been around for at least 400 million years - proof of their resilience, but there’s still so much to learn about these majestic creatures. From their social dynamics to the different kinds of shark-tracking devices currently in use, we spoke to Michelle Jewell, the Chief Science Communicator in the Department of Applied Ecology at NC State University. In this episode, she shared personal stories from her graduate school days as a white shark researcher in South Africa to what she does today as a science communicator for a university.

This episode was written and produced by Devika Nair and Li Wang with editing help from the rest of the CTOR team. Music used in this episode: Tiny Putty, Game Hens, Hundred Mile, Bundt, Borough, Slow Lane Lover, Front Runner, Calm and Collected, Beignet, and Tar and Spackle by Blue Dot Sessions. Sound effects from FreeMusicArchive.

Welcome to Women in Science, a special series in honor of Women’s History Month. Join us each Monday in March as we hear from women making great strides in their fields, from reproductive health justice to animal evolution. We’ll learn about the challenges they’ve faced in their journeys, explore the importance of representation, and see how women on the forefront of science and medicine lift up others and build toward a better tomorrow.
In the fifth and final episode of this series, we’re featuring Dr. Marina Sirota, an assistant professor at the Bakar Computational Health Sciences Institute at UCSF. We talk about how one can use troves of data to make important medical discoveries– but also about the challenges of leveraging so much information. Among other things, we also discuss the rewards of introducing young girls to the beauty of data science, and what it’s like to transition between industry and academia.

In the fourth episode of this series, we’re featuring Dr. Flora Rutaganira, a postdoctoral researcher in Dr. Nicole King’s lab at UC Berkeley. In our conversation, we talk about the beauty (and cuteness!) of choanoflagellates, finding community and direction as an early-career researcher, and how universities can support marginalized scientists.
