4 Thoughts on "Whip it Good: The Secret Life of Scientists and Engineers"

Yes. It’s shocking to some but we do have lives that are complex and are passionate about a variety of things.

Great of you, David, to pick up on the super Nova series about scientists and engineers. Must admit I’m particularly fond of Mayim Bailik’s segments. Power to the women of STEM!!
