We'll record an episode of each – back to back and in front of a live audience – then host a reception where you can mix and mingle with the hosts and your fellow attendees. Not familiar with the podcasts? Here's a little more info on each:
PodcastOne and Forbes’ The Limit Does Not Exist hosts Christina Wallace and Cate Scott Campbell believe creativity and STEM are better together. If you feel one path may not be your only path, and you'd rather build your own custom Venn diagram, this show is for you.
Christina and Cate will chat with science writer Jennifer Ouellette, whose books include “The Physics of the Buffyverse,” “The Calculus Diaries” and “Me, Myself and Why: Searching for the Science of Self.” They’ll dive into how Jennifer has made a career out of merging STEM and the arts and how she’s fostered relationships between science and Hollywood. Jennifer will also fill us in on her latest project, which is about the women who helped catalog Harvard’s extensive astrophotography collection. Plus, the show will have tips for throwing a fabulous science soiree and math hacks for winning at life.
American Public Media’s The Mash-Up Americans is your guide to “hyphen-America.” Hosts Amy S. Choi and Rebecca Lehrer talk culture, identity and what makes us who we are.
Rebecca and Amy will sit down with Bricia Lopez, partner at L.A.’s famed Oaxacan restaurant Guelaguetza and host of Super Mamás, to drink mezcal and talk about being an immigrant and representing her family and cultural traditions while also making her own footprint. They'll also touch on cooking her family’s recipes, guilt, parenting as a Mash-Up, and what mole is, really. She’ll also teach everyone how to make a “Bricia” cocktail, since she's the city's official mezcalera.
