Lady Ranelagh

Every early chemist has heard of Boyle’s law -- the equation that relates a gas’s pressure to its volume. But even if you have some awareness of Robert Boyle himself, it’s unlikely that you’ve heard of his sister...even though she was probably talking him through his ideas, either in person or by letter. This episode of Babes of Science was producedin collaboration with Distillations Podcast. Babes of Science is a podcast that seeks to answer two questions: Who are the women who changed the trajectory of science? And why has it taken us so long to recognize their work?

Henrietta Lacks

Henrietta Lacks developed an aggressive form of cervical cancer, and died at the age of 31. The cells from the tumor on her cervix, however, are still alive today.

Babes Alive: Brittany Bushnell

Imagine you're a PhD student, just getting started. And you realize you can't hear anything out of one ear, and THEN you learn that's because there's a tumor wrapped around the nerve starting at your inner ear and heading into the brain. That's what happened to Brittany Bushnell. She was studying neuroscience...and then she became the class example for abnormal visual reflexes. Music in this episode: Modulation of the Spirit by Little Glass Men Barometer by Bleak House The Temperature of the Air on the Bow of the Kaleetan by Chris Zabriskie Because You Hold Me Tight by Alex Fitch The Terrarium by Blue Dot Sessions February by Kai Engel Chinese Blues by Moore and Gardner from 1916 George Gershwin piano roll Tipsy Xylo by Podington Bear Trundle by Podington Bear All Eventualities by Gillicuddy Pens From Spain (Instrumental) by Loch Lomond
