About

Superwomen in Science is a podcast created, hosted, and produced by Nicole George and Cordon Purcell. It discusses the past, present, and future of women in science with the hopes to inspire future women in science, explore diverse scientists and scientific endeavors, and create a safe and supportive community of women scientists. 

Every episode of Superwomen in Science starts with a discussion about a current topic in science, and is followed by a reading from Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers who Changed the World by Rachel Ignotofsky. Then Cordon and Nicole interview a current woman in science about her work, ideas, and hopes for the future. Finally, a current organization or product to inspire future women in science is discussed and reviewed.

The money from this kickstarter will be used in a variety of ways. First, Nicole and Cordon will purchase new microphones, so that the quality of the recording, and therefore the sound quality of the episodes increases. Second, a subscription to Soundcloud will be purchased. This allows Superwomen in Science to continue to upload episodes. Some of the money will also go to creating merch, like buttons and stickers and to transcribing each episode. Finally, the rest of the money will go towards donations to the organizations discussed in the episode. 

Risks and challenges

We have successfully uploaded 8 episodes of the Superwomen in Science Podcast so far, and plan to continue our work. The money from this kickstarter will help us to continue to support the voices of women in science. If our goal is not met, we will still continue to do so.
