Spotlight on Science: This Week in Science (#TWIS)

In my last Spotlight on Science Post I talked about MySciCareer as a resource for scientists. Now, I’m back for another resource for scientists. The only podcasts I follow are This Week in Virology (TWIV) and This Week in Global Health (TWiGH). So when I heard about This Week in Science (TWIS) on Twitter I had to check it out. I love learning about anything related to STEM. The great thing about TWIS is that they talk about various topics in science and each episode is a chance to find out the latest things happening in science and technology.

This Week in Science (TWIS) is hosted by Dr. Kirsten Sanford, a Ph.D. in neuroscience, Justin Jackson, a professional car salesman and armchair physicist and Blair Bazdarich, TWIS resident zoologist. This just goes to shows you the diversity of a STEM career.

Also, what I like about TWIS is the excitement, energy and humor when they talk about science. This makes the podcast enjoyable, engaging and easy to follow. This is great because I am able to keep up with current research and science news. On Wednesday, February 4, 2015 This Week in Science celebrated its 500th episode. Congratulations to the entire TWIS team!
