Doing Science

Frizzy beard above the nose; thick warts on the face; chitty-chatty and yet ready to butt heads for sex. This episode is all about the many species of wild pigs that roam the forests of Southeast Asia and their deadly new threat, the African swine fever.

With conservation scientists Matthew Linkie and Sheherazade.

Storytelling Science

Science journalists (like me!) are a rare breed in Southeast Asia. But we serve an important public service by reporting on science and scientists. We tell science stories, and we safeguard the public good (wow~). Sounds great, no? But what’s life like for freelance science journalists here? Can we make a living? We dissect our careers in this episode.

With science journalists Dyna Rochmyaningsih and Sandy Ong.
