About the podcast
Physics is one of the core sciences. It studies matter, motion, energy, force, and how these all relate and behave in our universe. The history of physics, of course, looks at the development of physics throughout history, usually starting with the ancient Greeks, and going up to the present day. The philosophy of physics studies the most fundamental questions underlying modern physics. Investigating topics like the nature of time or probability.
In this podcast, I will combine both history and philosophy in what I hope to be an interesting overview of the wonderful world of physics!
About the host
I (Teagan) hold an Associate of Arts Degree from Okanagan College in Kelowna, B.C. and a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, B.C. (physics major, philosophy minor). In October 2021, I will begin a Master’s programme in the history and philosophy of science at the University of Cambridge in England.
I’m currently working full-time in STEM outreach with Let’s Talk Science. I spend most of the rest of my spare time promoting gender equity as founder of the UBC Young Women for STEM, narrating books on Facebook, reading plays, and watching British crime dramas.
Starting up this podcast was one of my self-isolation projects in 2020 and I hope to continue it for many years to come!
