Whether we wear a lab coat or haven't seen a test tube since grade school, science is shaping all of our lives. And that means we all have science stories to tell. Every year, we host dozens of live shows all over the country, featuring all kinds of storytellers - researchers, doctors, and engineers of course, but also patients, poets, comedians, cops, and more. Some of our stories are heartbreaking, others are hilarious, but they're all true and all very personal. Welcome to The Story Collider!

The Story Collider is a storytelling podcast about science. It's not just by scientists, but by anyone who science has impacted. Many of the stories are emotional, many describe harrowing experiences, but just about all of them end on a hopeful note. The storytellers have a fine grasp of the art - of creating a narrative arc, of a dramatic pause. More importantly, many of the stories highlighted in this podcast focus on the margins of science - but not in the sense of innovation. It is the experience of entering a PhD as a racial minority, of using science to defuse political tensions, of finding oneself on the cusp of potentially life-saving, but unproven, therapies. An approachable, often humorous podcast despite the subject matter.
