Lady Science Podcast

Previously featured in the 08-26-2016 Scout Report, Lady Science is a magazine on the history and popular culture of science that publishes a variety of voices and work on women and gender across the sciences. The podcast, which has released roughly one episode per month since October 2017, is hosted by the magazine's Editors-in-Chief Anna Reser and Leila McNeill and Managing Editor Rebecca Ortenberg. Historians, scientists, and feminists will enjoy the wide variety of topics discussed on the podcast, which range from women's roles in scientific fields such as domestic engineering (Episode 36); women and environmental social movements (Episode 21); how science has affected women through controversies over reproductive rights (Episode 3) and sex verification in sports (Episode 23); and topics from the stranger corners of history and science, such as the odd ways women's bodies have been described by male scientists (Episode 8) and the elision of lesbian relationships as close friendships (Episode 32). The podcast often features notable guests, such as scholar of transgender issues Susan Stryker (June 19, 2018), cosmologist Chanda Prescod-Weinstein (March 8, 2021), science journalist Wendy Zukerman (May 14, 2020), and medical historian Jaipreet Virdi (September 18, 2020). As of this writing, there are more than 40 episodes available to listen to, either on the page linked above or on a number of podcatchers.
