The most interesting people in the world of science and technology. STEM-Talk is an interview podcast show produced by the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition, a not-for-profit research lab pioneering ground-breaking technologies aimed at leveraging and extending human cognition, perception, locomotion and resilience. Twice a month, we talk to groundbreaking scientists, engineers and technologists. Our interviews focus on the science that our subjects are engaged with, as well as their careers, motivations, education, and passions. Think of them as “profiles in science.” Tune in every other Tuesday to our show—and if you like us, please write a review of STEM-talk on iTunes—and spread the word.

outstanding science show!
Great science-focused show featuring in-depth interviews with wonderful guests. Good production values and sound quality as well. Host and co-hosts seem to be having fun.
Can’t wait to hear more!
I love IHMC’s evening lecture series. This is like that, only more in-depth.
This podcast has covered some interesting people. Looking forward to who it next.
