Science Telephone

Marine biologist Julie Dimitrijevic takes Christine Bortolin, Tim Carlson, and Ryan Beil on a deep dive into the world of microplastics and Blue Mussels. Spoiler alert: the mussels are better at filtering plastic than these comedians are at doing science.

Show Notes

Marine biologist and conservationist Julie Dimitrijevic has spent a fair share of her time studying microplastics in bivalves - specifically the Blue Mussel. On this episode, she's kind enough to share her research with Christine Bortolin, Tim Carlson, and Ryan Beil, who seem a little overly focused on pseudo-feces.

What is Science Telephone?

Laugh while you learn, as the classic game of telephone is repurposed for scientific research. Each episode, one scientist explains their research to a comedian, who then has to explain it to the next comedian, and so on until it's almost unrecognizable. See what sticks and what changes, with a rotating cast of brilliant scientists and hysterical comedians.
