The Science Enthusiast Podcast!

Just the right amount of not-a-science-podcast! It's not the worst, but thank you for listening (and we're sorry?)!

Hosts: Natalie Newell (Skeptical Parenting) and Dan Broadbent (A Science Enthusiast)!

Follow the podcast on Youtube at!

Sponsor: Anyone but Pepsi Or United Airlines. Or Sean Spicer.

(YOU can sponsor the show at patreon [] or by buying some merch at!)

God of the week: Zombie Jesus. Because Easter. He dies. He fucking rises. And he has holes in his hands.

But Easter traditions spring from here (Eostre/Ostara) -  Germanic goddess

Association of rabbits with Easter might come from the Norse goddess Freyja

This week: Dan and Nat talked about current events, goings on, the March for Science being hijacked by anti-science zealots in US Right to Know, how to not criticize someone, and “outrage culture.”


Why we love the internet:

Quote of the Week: We make our world significant by the courage of our questions and the depth of our answers

Carl Sagan, Cosmos

Next week:  Nathan Dickey of Trolling With Logic Podcast (!
