Talk Nerdy

Talk Nerdy was created and is hosted by award winning journalist Cara Santa Maria.

She shares her conversations with interesting people who also have a wealth of knowledge about interesting things.

Her weekly episodes would have various guests from different fields of science. Every episode is worth listening as it gives the audience a new glimpse on anything worth knowing.

Her guests may range from an environmental journalist, medical entomologist, a famous television host or a best-selling author.

If you haven’t listened to Cara from Talk Nerdy, try listening to at least one episode.

For a good start, listen to the one with Scientific American’s editor named Michael Lemonick.

Their conversation revolves around Michael’s book titled “The Perpetual Now: A story of amnesia, memory, and love.” It’s a story of a woman who suffered from encephalitis.

In this episode, Michael and Cara discusses about how amazing the human brain is. Together they discuss about people whose brain was damaged or injured for some reason, but upon recuperation left many brain experts in awe.

If that sounds interesting, tune in.
