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).
