Very Special Episode: BlackAFinSTEM with various Ologists

The most ologists in one Ologies. And maybe my favorite episode ever. #BlackBirdersWeek was such a force that we wanted to keep the energy going by spotlighting not one, but 30 ologists. You’re about to meet 30 new science heroes who are @BlackAFinSTEM and chatting about electric fish snouts, urban birds, falcons, lizards, crocodiles, economics, carnivores, sea turtles, porcupine noses, butt breathing, Ivory Towers, microaggressions, and how being an ally is a learning process we can all get better at. Walk side by side through life as a Black academic and hear their tips to best support them as well as guidance to Black students. Follow and fawn over your 30 glorious new nerd friends.  Follow all of the wonderful people you just heard on Twitter, on this list: Follow Joseph Saunder’s gorgeous macro photography Follow BlackAFinSTEM at and A donation will be made to BlackAFinSTEM Donate to individual members of BlackAFinSTEM Hiring a wildlife biologist?
