Readers looking to indulge in authentic and amusing love stories should check out Crushes: Stories About Scientists in Love from The Story Collider. As the introduction to the show notes, we're chemically programmed for crushes. The piece introduces two stories where science and crushes collide. First, you'll learn about Devon Kodzis, a zoologist and Master of Biological Sciences student whose love of animals was only outmatched by her love for her now husband. Then, you'll learn about Meisa Salaita, a chemist whose chemistry with her classmate was evident. Readers can enjoy these tales of love in the world of STEM by listening to the audio version (which is just under 40-minutes long) or reading the transcripts of the two stories. The stories were published in November of 2019 on The Story Collider, a nonprofit dedicated to bringing readers and listeners "true, personal stories about science," since its launch in 2010. The Story Collider seeks to demonstrate that "everyone has a story about how science has impacted them... and that those stories, whether heartbreaking or hilarious, have the power to transform the way we think about science and whom it belongs to."
