  • Ain't No Mountain High Enough

    Feb 13 2021

    In this episode I interview Heather Clifford, a scientist who studies glaciers, climate change, and the climates that existed on our planet in the past. She’s traveled all over the world, and most recently went to Mt. Everest to help a team of scientists and explorers discover just how people and climate change are impacting the mountain. We talk about mountains, pollution, 2.7 MILLION YEAR OLD ICE, and the wonders of wool clothing.

  • On the Bright Side

    Jan 15 2021

    If you ever wanted to know why the sky is blue, this is the episode to listen to. I talk with Dr. Brad Moser, a physics professor and fellow podcaster, about light. That’s a pretty broad topic, but we try to touch on as many fun facts and explanations as we can in 20 minutes. We also talk about aliens and glaciers, because it wouldn’t be Go Forth and Science if we didn’t throw in some weird tangents as well.

    To see pictures of Dr. Moser’s adventures mentioned in this episode, head on over to my Instagram @goforthandscience or my Twitter @goforth_science. There will be lots of pretty views of rainbows, sunrises, and turquoise glacial lakes.

In this episode, I talk with Pam, a scientist and science communicator that has spent years knee-deep in their conservation efforts.

  • Greener on the Other Side

    Oct 16 2020

    Straying from the usual science-and-adventure theme of this podcast (because, let's be real, the election is coming up and who can't talk about it), in this episode we're going to hash out the big concept of environmental policy. My guest Tori worked with environmental laws in Congress for a year and describes what it was like to be a scientist in our government, how we can protect the natural places we love, and weighs in on some of her favorite outcomes of our country's political history.

  • The Real Rock Stars

    Aug 13 2020

    In honor of Comet NEOWISE making its presence known this July, and the current Perseid meteor shower happening in the middle of August (you should definitely go check it out), this episode’s topic is comets! Dr. Martha Hanner is an astronomer who has spent time in Australia, Germany, and California. What do all those places have in common? Well, in each one she could be found with her eyes gazing up at the stars and her brain tapped into the technology we were sending into them.
