Coming soon: Seeking A Scientist with Kate The Chemist

Crysta Henthorne
KCUR 89.3

The future is scary, but it doesn’t have to be! In a new podcast from KCUR Studios, host Kate Biberdorf (aka Kate the Chemist) is seeking scientists to guide us into the great unknown. From fungus zombies to feeling young forever, we’re puzzling out what our world could look like — and how we can get ready. Supported by The Stowers Institute For Medical Research.

Sometimes the themes of comic books and movies seem so far fetched. But actually, the top scientists of our world are exploring some of those very possibilities.

I'm Dr. Kate Biberdorf — or you may know me as Kate The Chemist. On my new podcast with KCUR Studios, Seeking A Scientist, we're talking to the people investigating some of our world's greatest questions — like what's the deal with mind control fungus? And can we really reverse aging?

It's a podcast where science fiction bubbles out of the beaker and we explore what's possible... together! The first episode drops this spring.

Every part of the present has been shaped by actions that took place in the past, but too often that context is left out. As a podcast producer for KCUR Studios and host of the podcast A People’s History of Kansas City, I aim to provide context, clarity, empathy and deeper, nuanced perspectives on how the events and people in the past have shaped our community today. In that role, and as an occasional announcer and reporter, I want to entertain, inform, make you think, expose something new and cultivate a deeper shared human connection about how the passage of time affects us all.
