Episode 49 of the FizzicsEd podcast

This week it's a dual interview... one between Tom Gordon who helps anchor the STEMpunk podcast and Ben from the FizzicsEd podcast! Tom Gordon is a highly accomplished science communicator, where his work at Kickstart at the University of Sydney gives him the chance to show high school students what it is really like to run experiments at the school of physics. In this episode both Tom and Ben interview each other about their thoughts on STEM and why science literacy is so important. Something a little different!
