Artists impression of Ivy Artist: Ivy

In this episode, Tom interviews Science communicator and journalist Ivy Shih. We talked a lot about science journalism, which is really great as it is a different perspective to what we normally hear on this podcast. A great episode where I feel like I learnt a lot about journalism and a different side of science communication. There was a lot in this interview about science writing and I really liked that. I hope you do too!

Ivy answered Rachel's question taking writing out of context and asked her own here:
If there was one thing that you could tell yourself in the beginning stages of your career, what would that be?
You can Find Ivy on twitter here @ivyhish, as well as on Lateral Magazine. Ivy wrote a wonderful piece about the Thylacine called Life after death. It's great.

STEMpunk Merch
To support the podcast we've decided to sell some podcast merchandise...With a difference.

It takes 2,700 litres of water to make one t-shirt, so instead of making more things, we've re-used them. Our items are bought in an op-shop, then we write "STEMpunk" on it with a permanent marker.

Due to the fact that these items are second hand, they will not be "perfect" but they certainly are unique!

Head over to our STEMpunkPod Etsy store to get our merchandise.
