Customer Reviews


Poncie's pursuit of scientific female exploits is so needed right now. She establishes a great tone for this podcast right off the bat, engaging and entertaining with tales of "female badassery." Can't wait for more.

These podcasts will get you googling!

How many female scientists can you name from history? Even as a female scientist my list wasn't very long. Poncie reveals the fascinating lives and work of women across the many fields of science. These enchanting little episodes will have you scouring the Internet for more information on these lovely ladies.

My New Favorite Podcast

This is my new favorite podcast. Episodes are short but cram so much wonderful stuff in—a terrific payoff for a short amount of time. Many longer podcasts don’t leave me feeling like I’ve learned as much as I do in 12 minutes of Babes of Science. I really love Poncie’s approach—there are cool facts and stories here, but she also manages to identify what makes each of these women special and how their stories reflect larger issues from their time and today. And she does it without a bit of rambling, in 15 minutes or less. That takes skill.

All of the episodes are great, but I think Rosalyn Yalow was my favorite. One nitpick: Maria Mitchell’s name is pronounced Mar-EYE-a, like Mariah Carey. I have too many friends who are Vassar grads or who worked at the Maria Mitchell Association to let that one go.
