347: LGBTQ+ STEM Day, Future of Roe v. Wade, Guest Guy Branum
Throwing Shade #347 July 11, 2018
In honor of LGBTSTEM Day, Bryan pulls some surprising statistics about LGBTQ+ people in the scientific world and reveals which of your favorite dead scientists was gay. Hint: all of them! Then Erin gets into the long, slow dismantling of Roe v. Wade that’s been thrust into the spotlight with Trump’s new Supreme Court pick, and comedian Guy Branum stops by to talk about his first exposure to queerness, being funny for his own benefit, and his new book My Life as a Goddess: A Memoir Through (Un)Popular Culture.
