For lovers of reading, writing, science and general communication. This podcast will aim at acknowledging the origins of metaphors/idioms and the importance of effective scientific communication. My ambition is to spread knowledge on how we articulate concepts and the creative aspect of diction. Most episodes will focus on the origins of expressions, words of high regard, and the meaning behind them. This can overall allow us to acknowledge that words have just as much power as actions.​ As ...

When we think about science, we often hear about amazing discoveries, but rarely hear about the struggles, personal accomplishments, and personalities of the scientists behind the data. On Deeper than Data with Ben Rush, we explore the personal journeys, failures, and successes of scientists through storytelling and humor. You’ll walk away with touching stories, life lessons, and feeling inspired through conversational interviews and improvised games.
 
We (Julia and Jonathan) happen to be academics and also happen to be psychologists studying speech perception. We want to make awesome science, make science awesome, and share what we’ve learned with a broad audience. In The Juice and the Squeeze, we peel apart issues in our careers and beyond (e.g., prioritizing, imposter syndrome, motivation, and more).
 
SciVibes: Chatting With Global Scientists brings you casual conversations with global scientists, fascinating chats that happen at coffee breaks and in the corridors with some of the thousands of scientists that visit ICTP every year.

What is the economy? People used to tell stories about the exchange of goods and services in terms of flows and processes — but over the last few hundred years, economic theory veered toward measuring discrete amounts of objects. Why? The change has less to do with the objective nature of economies and more to do with what tools theorists had avail…

Whether in an ecosystem, an economy, a jazz ensemble, or a lone scholar thinking through a problem, critical transitions — breakdowns and breakthroughs — appear to follow universal patterns. Creative leaps that take place in how mathematicians “think out loud” with body, chalk, and board look much like changes in the movement through “music-space” …

The popular conception of ants is that “anatomy is destiny”: an ant’s body type determines its role in the colony, for once and ever. But this is not the case; rather than forming rigid castes, ants act like a distributed computer in which tasks are re-allocated as the situation changes. “Division of labor” implies a constant “assembly line” enviro…
