This week on the podcast, I talk to placentologist / nerd musician Dr. Jess F. Hebert about midwestern accents, crowdfunding, and why eating placenta meat might not be the best idea. We also talk about the merging of sciecne and art, and how performers like Tom Lehrer helped pave the way for irreverent, smart, transgressive music. Dr. Hebert talks about how science is for the enthusiastic, which I thougth was a genisu way to put it. She's had an awesome journey so far, and she was really fun to talk to. Thank you Dr. Hebert!
