The STEMINIST podcast conceived in part by the Cullen College and Nicole Guinn, a Ph.D. student in the college’s geosensing systems engineering and sciences program, as a way to introduce an underrepresented topic: science communication. Guinn served as the podcast’s primary host for seasons 1 and 2. Topics ranged from climate change, space exploration, career advice, and pluralistic ignorance.
