Readers who are curious about what really goes on in the world of scientific research may want to check out Undiscovered, a podcast produced by the Science Friday initiative. Hosted and produced by Annie Minoff and Elah Feder, this podcast tells stories of "the left turns, missteps, and lucky breaks that make science happen," bringing listeners into the often weird backstories of science. For example, in the episode "Six Degrees," mathematicians Duncan Watts and Steven Strogatz set out to discover the truth behind the phrase "six degrees of separation" and unexpectedly started a whole new field of science in the process. Each episode's page includes show notes with an episode summary, photos, links to relevant resources, and a full transcript. Launched in 2017, Undiscovered just announced the start of their second season, and their full first season is available to stream and download via Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and other platforms.
