Read Science! Episode 27 : “Undeniable Science” Edition, with Corey S. Powell
In this episode we talked with Corey S. Powell, editor of the book “Undeniable : Evolution and the Science of Creation”, by Bill Nye, former editor-in-chief of “American Scientist” and “Discover” magazines, and author of the Discover blog “Out There”.
As usual, our conversation was wide ranging, from debating with creationists to GMOs, science journalism to the human need for exploration. And this was where we first learned that Bill Nye was visiting Monsanto to learn more about GMOs and they will be editing that controversial chapter. This link will take you straight to that part of the conversation.

Popular Science Books as Science Communication #SciTalk19
I am quite pleased to put my popular science book reading hobby/obsession to good use and give a 20 minute presentation to fellow science communicators at the Science Talk ’19 conference.
Before I provide the list of books presented, many authored by women, you may be interested in the fact that I maintain a list of women science writers. Check that out at Women Science Book Writers.
I am also trying to be smart about keeping track of books that are coming out in 2019, and have that list at 2019 Science Books.
What follows are the books I shared at #SciTalk19 along with the category I assigned them to. Many of the books could fall into several categories and the categories are ones that I created and are not canon by any stretch.
There are so many books out there, and due to time constraints, surely I forgot some of your favorites! Thanks for understanding that I could not list even all of my favorites.
