Show Notes for Books and Ideas Podcast #14

This episode is a conversation with Dr. Pamela Gay from the Astronomy Cast. Dr. Gay teaches astronomy and physics at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. Before the Astronomy Cast she was one of the hosts of one of the first science podcasts, Slacker Astronomy. I think her enthusiasm for science and especially for astronomy comes through in this interview.

Besides astronomy we talked about the challenges of teaching science as well as the challenges of being a female scientist.
