Episode 1: 50 Shades of Physics

Katie Taschann-Grim

On this episode, we interviewed Dr. Katy Tschann-Grimm, Leena's close personal friend. Katy got her bachelor’s degree in physics at UCLA, and then got her PhD in Particle Physics at the State University of New York, Stony Brook. She is currently starting a faculty position in the Department of Physics at California State University East Bay, in San Francisco. We discussed that Goddamn Particle, the Higgs Boson, and she told us about her visit with Al Gore at CERN. We also talked about her love of baking and her current projects writing cookbooks. She was also kind enough to offer some advice for getting kids interested in science.
