My goal is to provide audience-driven discussion about basic science and scientific headlines we see in the media. Do you want to know about space travel? How are scientists studying addiction? What are some advances in climate research? Let me know what you are interested in by commenting on my website, or on my Facebook page, and I will get an answer for any science question you may have. Not satisfied with our expertise? In addition our discussions about science, we will be interviewing top researchers in each field we talk about to learn the brand new advances that are happening RIGHT NOW in their labs. Want more?! We will even ask questions or bring up concerns that YOU, the audience, has with the researchers to open communication lines that have never before been opened. We look forward to conversing with you and thank you for your support.

The science podcast that'll eat your brain. Shabam! is a new type of science show that blends fictional stories with real science. If you love science but hate those awkward scientist interviews that involve graphs and confusing metaphors, you’re in luck. First off, Shabam! is an audio program - so no graphs. And second, through the magic of sound effects and music, you’ll hear stories that reveal the awesomeness in the world around us - like cellphones and vaccinations. In season one, our main story is about three kids separated from their parents during a Zombie apocalypse. Over the course of 10 episodes we follow their quest to reunite with their families. But their experience leads us to another conclusion - that there’s a lot of science all around us that we take for granted. And finally, you may be wondering whether we’ve added silly songs and jokes to make up for the fact that we can’t show you graphs. Yes we have. Also, we only interview cool scientists who aren't awkward, which means the whole family can enjoy it!
