PODCAST REVIEW: Want to be moved and excited by science? This week we’re listening to ‘Ologies’

The world is full of fascinating landscapes, organisms, phenomena and people. Equally interesting are those who study them, and have made careers out of investigating down to the most minute detail. From forensic ecology to dolorology, ‘Ologies’ is a podcast for the listener who never wants to stop learning.

The show is divided intobroad topicssuch as animals, culture, mathematics and the body, but the ologies that make up these four categories are all unique and are as fascinating as the next. The topics are convenient to find an episode in the range of something you are interested in or in the mood for, but they are far from limiting.

Each episode features a new “ology” and introduces the listener to a guest who works in that field. The show includes some more well-known names such asDr Laurie Santos, who studies happiness, and Hank Green who speaks about the makings of TikTok and social media; there are also many individuals whose studies are more obscure, but equally interesting, such as Cameron Weiss and horology (the study of watches) and Tim Winegard and hagfishology (yes, the study of hagfish).
