Lost Women of Science

5.0/5

Critic Rating

For every Marie Curie or Rosalind Franklin whose story has been told, hundreds of female scientists remain unknown to the public at large. In this series, we illuminate the lives and work of a diverse array of groundbreaking scientists who, because of time, place and gender, have gone largely unrecognized. Each season we focus on a different scientist, putting her narrative into context, explaining not just the science but also the social and historical conditions in which she lived and worked. We also bring these stories to the present, painting a full picture of how her work endures.

Keelin • Mentally? A Magpie. May 10, 2023

"Lost Women of Science is a podcast that feels like it started as a personal project and then expanded into what it is now. Not only has the production quality improved in an impressive way, but the addition of a cohost elevated the podcast considerably. This podcast jumps between interview snippets and narration. Having this great cohost-dynamic brought this podcast’s overall voice...It made it more approachable not just in the quality of writing and information, but also in overall tone."
