Upcoming Shows

For our March show, we're taking a look inward-- namely, inside the Earth itself. Join us for a conversation with Vedran Lekić, a seismologist at the University of Maryland who uses seismic waves to learn what's under the Earth's surface. We'll talk about earthquakes, tectonic plates, and how we know what we know about the world beneath our feet. Buy tickets here!
April's A Scientist Walks into a Bar is taking flight! We'll be chatting with ornithologist Jonathan Meiburg about his new book. A Most Remarkable Creature explores the wild and fascinating story of the history, origins, and possible futures" of caracaras, birds of prey that live on the Falkland Islands. We'll talk with Jonathan about a series of travels throughout South America, from the fog-bound coasts of Tierra del Fuego to the tropical forests of Guyana, his time writing the book itself, and maybe ask him about his other day job as the frontman for the rock band Shearwater.
