Sometimes I feel guilty for not donating my whole paycheck to NPR. That’s because I always learn about what’s going on and get exposed to new ideas and people just by listening (even if I’m washing dishes at the same time).
Today was one of those days that I heard about an incredible-sounding person. Her name is Ainessa Ramirez and she’s a self-described “science evangelist” who is doing some great work through books, podcasts, and more. Truthfully, as someone working in science and communications, I’m a bit embarrassed I haven’t heard about her before.
And if her background and current work isn’t impressive enough, the video she did that’s linked from the NPR webpage is about light (and fireworks)! Seriously, I think she might be perfect ;)
