It is the lost episode of 2014! This was the last show of last year, and in a way it’s a good intro for those who are wanting their fix of 2015 EAGG. But really it’s an excuse to say that we had issues. It is now here for your podcasting pleasure!

This episode is basically all about Dr Shane, Dr Jennifer Henry, Dr Jen, Dr Krystal, Dr Katherine, Dr Chromo, Dr Ray going through their favourite pieces of science of the year & what they want for Christmas. Dr Lauren also calls in to chat about her highlights too. A good ‘ol bunch of science chinwagging.

The team talk to Ashley Hay, editor of The Best Australian Science Writing 2014. Now in its fourth year, this popular and acclaimed anthology steps inside the nation’s laboratories and its finest scientific and literary minds. Featuring prominent authors such as Tim Flannery, Jo Chandler, Frank Bowden and Iain McCalman, as well as many new voices, it covers topics as diverse and wondrous as our ‘lumpy’ universe, the creation of dragons and the frontiers of climate science.

They also speak to Assistant Professor Michelle Smith from the Maine Center for Research in STEM Education (The Maine RiSE Center), about new approaches to better engage with students, and to train them in the work of doing science rather than just memorisation; professional development and the privelege of teaching; and some of the pervasive misunderstandings in genetics.
