Our lives revolve around science. From passing high school chemistry to surviving open-heart surgery, from reading a book on mountain lions to seeing the aftermath of an oil spill, from spinning a top to looking at pictures of distant galaxies, science affects us and shapes us. At The Story Collider, we want to know people's stories about science. From our monthly live shows to our Pictures of Science project, we bring together scientists, comedians, librarians, and other disreputable types to tell true, personal stories of times when, for good or ill, science happened.

The Story Collider is on my list as being among the most thoughtful and entertaining podcasts.
Best podcast I've ever subscribed to. I'm more excited about a new Story Collider than a new Breaking Bad Episode. And luckily these are released at a far greater frequency. Thank you Story Collider!!!
This is a very enjoyable podcast, I eagerly wait every week to hear these wonderful stories. Anyone a fan of The Moth will love this. Anyone the fan of science will love this. Basically, EVERYONE will love this podcast.
