Science Brunch is a podcast that features irreverent but mostly factual conversation about famous scientists and their discoveries, recent scientific events, and random science-y stuff. It is hosted by friendly neighborhood weirdos Katie McKissick (Beatrice the Biologist; science communicator) and Mae Prynce [INSERT CAREER HERE].

This podcast is informal and fun, but surprisingly information rich!
The cool and fun way to learn about famous scientists
Katie and her guests do a great job of giving a modern spin on scientists such as Marie Curie and Charles Darwin. They give nice summaries of their contributions and important context of their discoveries by weaving an interesting story and asking listeners if they would want to have brunch with this scientist. Along the way they give some cool science updates and make a few jokes. I really enjoyed the first 3 episodes and look forward to more!
Funny and Interesting
Two women who can banter smartly better than anyone on any media. You end up learning cool stuff and they are always fun to listen to--no dead lulls in any episode I find the obscure scientists are actually the most fun episodes to hear.
