Title: Ologies
Url: https://www.alieward.com/ologies
Creator: Ward, Alison A.
Publisher: Ward, Alison A.
Description: Alie Ward is an Emmy Award-winning science correspondent and humorist who has appeared on CBS's Innovation Nation, Netflix's Brainchild, and the Science Channel's How to Build Everything, to name a few. She is also the creator and host of Ologies, a fantastic podcast in which Ward interviews an expert "-ologist" in a different field of study for each episode. Recent examples include bufology, or the study of toads, with Priya Nanjappa; ludology, or the study of games, with Dr. Jane McGonigal; and etymology, or the study of word origins, with Helen Zaltzman. Ward's inexhaustible curiosity, zest for "ask[ing] smart people stupid questions," and rambunctious sense of humor make Ologies a delight that everyone can learn from, regardless of their academic background. For those wanting to share this podcast with younger audiences, "bleeped" versions, as well as transcripts of many episodes, are available at the Ologies Extras link at the bottom of the site. Episodes are generally an hour or more in length, and listeners can stream them at the link above or subscribe via their podcast platform of choice.
