Interview with Jessica Wade discussing gender stereotypes in science, ways to encourage women in science, her work editing Wikipedia entries and how Wikipedia should be improved, how she’d improve science funding, her work on chiral materials and its near-term applications, whether writing a kid’s science book should be rewarded in academia, and more.

The episode mentions her kid’s science book, Nano: The Spectacular Science of the Very (Very) Small, which sounds like a good buy for the young people in your life.
