Dr. Jen Gunter is famous for being an incredibly smart, witty, and down-to-Earth gynecologist who regularly schools Gwyneth Paltrow on the bullshit she peddles on GOOP. She sits down with host Rebecca Watson to chat about how she became a gynecologist because she got angry, came to the US for the chlamydia, and went after charlatans to make the world a better place.

You can see Dr. Jen Gunter live on stage August 2nd at Pianofight in San Francisco! Our other guests will be Kishore Hari, Keith Lowell Jensen, and Ngaio Bealum. Tickets are now available on Eventbrite!

You might know Kishore Hari from’s This is Only a Test, or from the Bay Area Science Festival which he directs, or from his podcast, Inquiring Minds. He and Rebecca talk about science communication, the fun of doing 10,000 things at once, making scientists wrestle one another in the name of outreach, and what went wrong (and what went right) with the March for Science.

You can see Kishore live on stage August 2nd at Pianofight in San Francisco! Our other guests will be Dr. Jen Gunter and Ngaio Bealum. Tickets are now available on Eventbrite!
