In the second episode in our “Science Helps Us…” series, we explore the ways that science shapes the ways we tell stories – and how it helps make those stories a reality.
Our guests, Brian Johnson and Rebekah Brubaker, put the “science” back into science fiction by convening the gold-star standard of science paneling at one of the largest comic cons in the country: Phoenix Fan Fusion. We discuss the benefits of the comic con format as a vehicle for science engagement, tips for budding science communicators, and why Ross from Friends is an unexpected role model for scientist representation in the media. Plus, guest spots from STPF Fellows and alumni who featured as panelists at this year’s Fan Fusion!
